    Independent, fearless and never-compromising in spirit, the Kukis dared to challenge the then mightiest colonial power of the time, British empire. It took for the British military forces three years to suppress the Kuki Rebellion, as it is officially known, through their Kuki Punitive Measures, 1917-1919. Much has been written in the form of research papers, monographs and doctoral thesis on the subject, basing on the archival documents and oral sources which are locally available in India. Everybody cannot afford to visit the India Office, Blackfier Street, London and the British Museum and Library, London, which house a lot of unpublished documents on Kuki Rebellion and for that matter the history of modern Manipur. It is really so thoughtful on the part of Rev. Dr. Pu Jangkholam Haokip, who, during his stay at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, had managed to collect rare and unpublished documents on Kuki Rebellion hitherto unexplored and has now made them available in this precious book to the academic community. The present book, though small, is a mine of information and will definitely help scholars and research students to reassess the Kuki Rebellion in a truer historical perspective.

    Relevance of Thempu in Pastoral Ministry: A Socio-Theological Perspective

    Rated 0 out of 5
    300.00 Add to cart

    The book gives an in-depth qualitative study on indigenous Kuki Thempu who depended considerably on spirits for the physical and spiritual welfare of the village people. The innumerable cultic rituals he performed showed great respect centred around natural elements like trees, animals, rivers, streams, mountains, and most of all on Indoi. Seeking the goodwill of God and spirits was the primary aim of the Thempu to bring about health and social tranquil atmosphere. A retrograde journey to cultural roots can draw an immense wealth of heritage that could be valuable in effective pastoral ministry in Catholic religious tradition.

    Voices from the Margins

    The wisdom of tribal peoples has often been overlooked, both within the church and outside of it. However as the ideologies of consumerism, free market individualism, and nationalism grow more and more dominant across the globe, with devastating implications for our planet’s shared future, it has become ever more urgent to make space for voices from the margins – voices offering alternative frameworks for understanding the nature of existence, spirituality, and what it means to be human.

    This book draws together contributors from diverse tribal and denominational backgrounds to reflect on the future of Christianity in Northeast India, a region rich in ancient myths, oral traditions, and a vibrant awareness of both the spiritual realm and the embeddedness of humans within creation. Joining a wider conversation regarding the integration of Christianity and primal traditions, the authors wrestle with crucial questions surrounding identity and the challenges of contextualizing the gospel in relation to their own languages, cultures, and traditions. Looking both backwards and forwards, they provide insight into the history of Christianity in tribal contexts, while exploring the vital significance of recovering and transmitting indigenous knowledge and the profound perspective it offers the church into the significance of Christ and his gospel.
