Colonial Administration

By the time the Zo country was annexed, the British had accumulated a certain amount of knowledge and experiences in dealing with the indigenous tribes. These experiences, together with the obvious fact that the tribal (including Zomi) of the North East India had no racial, historical, cultural or linguistic affinity with the peoples of the surrounding plains, led the British to create a system of administration which placed emphasis on self government based upon the traditional customs and cultures of the people. The British administrators had never directly interfered in the internal administration of the tribal of the North East, including the Zomi. This could be observed from the following links:

  Colonial system of indirect rule and

  Protective Discrimination
