Manipur, India

Boy in Manipur, India attending Storytelling session

Manipur literally means “land of the gems” and is a state in northeastern India that also borders Myanmar (Burma). Like other northeastern states, it is largely isolated from the rest of India. Surrounded by nine hills with an oval-shaped valley at the center, Manipur also boosts an all-women market.

Because the culture of India is becoming increasingly homogenous, CPI worked with the respected filmmaker, Somi Roy, to capture Manipur’s indigenous games, as part of our Cultural Conservation initiative.
