Colonisation, Identity and Search for Peace


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to visit the India Office, Blackfier Street, London and the British Museum and Library, London, which house a lot of unpublished documents on Kuki Rebellion and for that matter the history of modern Manipur.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 Pu Jangkholam Haokip, who, during his stay at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, had managed to collect rare and unpublished documents on Kuki Rebellion hitherto unexplored and has now made them available in this precious book to the academic community.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.
