Khampti

TheKhampti Tribes in arunachal Khamptis occupying the eastern part of the state, are Buddhist by religion. They have their own script which is derived from the Tai language. The society is divided into classes, signifying distinct status in the social hierarchy. The chiefs naturally occupy the highest position
followed by the priest who wield considerable influence over all ranks. In the past the slaves constitutes the lowest rank. 

The Kamptis profess the Hinayana form of Buddhism but they do not abstain from meat. Two great celebrations are held in commemoration of the birth and death of Gautham Buddha for which they take out religious procession with the idol of the Buddha.
