The Zomi were known and feared for their raids. Their raids against British subjects intensified when the East India Company’s expansionist policy of establishing tea gardens were encroaching on their hunting grounds and cultivable areas. The pleasure of head-hunting was never the reasons for the raids, as Shakespear put it thus: “The killing and taking of heads were merely incidents in the raids, not the cause of it.”
