Brief Early History of PAITE as Compiled in ZO HISTORY by Pu Vumson

Paihte or Paite is a name given by the Lusei and Pawi to people living in Tedim, in the southern and eastern parts of Manipur district and in the Somra Tract.
 Thaute or 'fat people' is also a name given to them by the Lusei.

 Among Paite themselves thaute refers only to the Sizang. In literature the term Kuki also covers part of the Paite. The clans of the Paihte are Guite, Ngaihte, Teizang, Thado (Khuangsai), Sukte, Sizang, Khuano, Saizang, Vaiphei, Baite, Gangte, and Yo. Most Paite clans claim to be descendants of Songthu, who is listed as one of the earliest Zo men. In the absence of written records however less important men have been forgotten, and only those with power have been remembered. Songthu, or Cawngtu, must have been a powerful man, as Songthu songs are still sung in ceremonies among the Lusei and Paite

The Paite tell of early settlement in the Tuikang or Chindwin valley, where they lived with the Khamang people, who may have been the Shans. According to Vum K…


By Rev. Lalrosiem Songate, General Director, Evangelical Congregational Church of India
"The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death
a light has dawned. (Math. 4:15-16 NIV)"

The above quotation taken from the Bible aptly describes the historic moment when Christianity sets its foot for the first time in the district almost a hundred years ago, that turned one of the most ferocious and war-like tribes into one of the most peace-loving and most faithful followers of Jesus Christ within a few decades.

The origin and development of Christianity in Churachandpur cannot be discussed a part from the history of the Evangelical Congregational Church of India (the erstwhile North East India General Mission) because this is the first church that was established and that many churches that have sprang up over the years are related to this church in one way or another.
