The Mizos are a gregarious, simple, carefree and peace-loving people. Since the days of the chieftains they have always been a close-knit society with moral values based on Tlawmngaihna, or essentially, selfless service for others, a rare principle which goes well with Christianity.
There is practicallyno status or class distinction amongst the member of the Mizo society, enabling even a fourth-grade emplyee of the government to chair a social gathering or a church service attended by officers of high ranks, the privilege being accorded to any active volunteer or worker. Moreover, the local communities, now largely represented by the Young Mizo Association, voluntarily assume the resposibility of helping the needy and the poor. The Mizos are proud to say that hardly any beggar is to be found in the streets.
Endowed with a rich and colourful culture, the Mizos are passionately drawn to dance and songs. They have a rich repertoire of community dances and songs reflecting their mirthful nature which has been handed down for generations. In fact, the Mizos are a singing community and still prolific with new songs and Christian hyms to this day. Festivals, weddings, death of a person and calamity are occassions involving the whole village community.
