Brief introduction about ‘The Garos’

Major Playfair in his book “The Garos,” beautifully defines Garo Hills as “Garo Hills is at the western end of the range of hills which forms the southern boundary of the Brahmaputra Valley, where the river flows through the province of Assam, is situated the Garo Hills district”. Garo hills lie between 25° 9' and 26° l' of North Latitude, and between 89° 49' and 91° 2' of East longitude. It is bounded on the north and west by the district of Goalpara; on the south by the district of Mymensingh; and on the east by the Khasi Hills. This place is the home of indigenous people called the Garo.

Garo Hills is one of the main districts in Meghalaya. The Garos and this district were not known to the people outside, until its annexation by British in 1867. After their intervention British established a separate district for the Garo Hills in December, 1867 with headquarter at Tura. The area of Garo Hills is approximately 8,000 sq kms. It is densely forested and hence it is considered as one of the richest spots in biodiversity. It is a place where the indigenous groups of people called Garos resides from centuries and they are one of the original settlers in the North East India. Garos not only settled in Meghalaya but also in all the states of North East India, as far as West Bengal including Bangladesh. According to the tradition Garos are migrated from a place called Torua, which is in Tibet. The Garo people mostly prepare to call themselves as “Achik” or “Achik Mande” which literary translated as “Hills people” and the land where they occupie as “Achik Asong” (Land).
