Abstract

In Northeastern India, conflicts between nationalities and communities are academically labeled as ethnic conflicts, whereas such a group’s quest for framing a distinct identity and consequent collective mobilization of its members are branded as ethnic assertion or movement. The terms ethnic communities, tribes and nationalities are frequently used as inter-exchangeable expressions. In the context of India, it can be noticed that while some of the ethnic groups have been officially recognized as ‘Scheduled Tribes’ (ST) by the state, some others have been left out due to various reasons. In this context, the proposed study will explore the genesis and the issues of growing political consciousness and subsequent consolidation of ethnicity among the ‘Matak’ community which is concentrated mainly in the districts of Tinsukia, Dibrugarh and Sibsagar in Upper Assam, and the ‘Moran’ community which inhabits Tinsukia district.

Key Words

Ethnic, Identity, Matak, Moran, Northeastern India, Scheduled Tribes.
