river. According to their own tradition and belief they had originally
migrated from the plains and even claim to have connections with the kings
who ruled over Assam.
Marriage among the Mijis usually take place by negotiation.
Nominal bride price is given by the parents of the bridegroom. Other social
systems like inheritance is through the male line. All the sons get equal
shares of the property left by the father. The main house is inherited
by the eldest son. After the death of the father, the unmarried daughters
live with their brothers who are responsible for giving them away in marriage.
