ABSTRACT:
The Kabui celebrate Rih-ngai, war festival on the 13th day of Manipuri lunar month Phairen (February) for one day every year. The practice of head hunting was gone. But, it is preserved in the form of narrative. The male members of Khangchu, male’s dormitory perform the war rituals like Ritaak Phaimei, Kabaomei, Chong Kapmei etc. at the village gate to preserve and promote the rich culture and tradition of the people. The young men learn the tradition of their forefathers. Dance and music are part and parcel in the celebration of the festival. Kabui Naga dance is famous in the country. The data are based on available primary and secondary sources.
