Introduction / History
The Miri are a scheduled caste of India. They are also called Mishing. Many Miri live in the hills of Arunachal Pradesh. The Mishing live in Assam too.

They have cross-cousin marriages. Cultivation and fishing are their main work. They also work as laborers in agriculture. They speak a Tibeto-Burman language and Hindi too. Meat is eaten by them except beef and they have rice as a cereal.

The dead are buried away from the village they live in. They have a traditional community council to look after them. They are Hindus by religion.
