Mizos are basically agriculturists, practising what is known as 'jhum-cultivation'. All their activities revolve around this cultivation and their festivals are also connected with such agricultural operations.
Among other festivals, Chapchar Kut or Spring Festival is the most popular festival, celebrated after completion of the most arduous task of jungle clearing for 'jhum' operations. On this day, people of all ages, young and old, men and women dressed in their respective colourful costumes and head-gears, assemble and perform various folk dances, sing traditional songs, accompanied by the beating sound of drums, gongs and cymbals.
