Tangkhuls have a history of documenting their rich culture orally. The oral tradition of teaching their young ones has been a significant factor in keeping the culture alive. This reliance on disseminating information orally, in turn, made written records neglected but as soon as a generation stopped keeping the oral tradition, and hampered the next generation. And though with the advent of technology where we can all check things on the internet, the sources to get ideas of how the tribe lives are still ambiguous.
There has been a resurgence of people documenting the culture through videos and other mediums in recent years. The need to produce more mediums for the tribe has become necessary to at least intrigue other people about India’s vast and various tribes. Future people can know about the tribe and consume information in different mediums. The outcome of this project is in the medium of a comic. It focuses on narratives, characters, and the information that needs to be conveyed.
For future scope, I can further extend the stories into more series with the characters that were developed, highlighting the different aspects of the culture and tradition of the Tangkhul tribe. And with that, if the other youth or people of the Tangkhul tribe can be intrigued into making more visual narratives and are open to the evaluation, we could all have better documentation of the Tangkhul tribe. Furthermore, these comic books can be translated into other languages, and the illustrations in the comic can also be used as informative templates for the required product.
