Traditional dance performed by Hajong tribe

The Hajong are the fourth majority tribe in Meghalaya. Hajongs are found in both the Garo and Khasi Hills of Meghalaya, largely along the Bangladesh border. They also live in the Dhubri and Goalpara districts of lower Assam, Dhemaji and other districts of upper Assam and into Arunachal Pradesh.

 

Hajong women can be easily identified by their brightly striped red dress called a Pathin& "Phula Agon". Traditionally, and in many present day villages, women are accomplished weavers who make their own Pathin,Phula Agon,Phula Kompes, Gamsa and their household's clothing
