The Reangs are a tribe mostly living in Mizoram state of North East India. They are also known as Brus. Their displacement is mainly the result of the ethnic clash with the dominant Mizos in Mizoram.
In this Article (The Displaced Reangs in Hailakandi District) by Abdul Mannan Mazumder and Bornali Bhattacharjree, an attempt has been made to reflect briefly on the displacement of this small ethnic group as a good number of Reangs took shelter in the Assam–Mizoram border in the southern-most part of Hailakandi district of Assam in 1997.
The Article was published in an anthology of papers/articles on Internally Displaced Peoples (IDPs) in North East India titled Blisters on their Feet: Tales of Internally Displaced Persons in India’s North East edited by Samir Kumar Das and published by Sage Publications in 2008.
