A hundred and eighteen years and counting, the Seng Khasis or the Khasi community following the indigenous faith continues to celebrate the renaissance and awakening of the Khasi community and this year was no exception as the streets of Shillong was covered in festivity as people danced through the streets to the sound of the drums and chanting the traditional cry “Hoii kiew”. The occasion was none other than the festival of the indigenous Khasi faith and culture – Seng Kut Snem. The festival is observed to mark the Seng Khasi Movement. During the British rule, continued assault on the indigenous faith and culture of the Khasis and Jaintias led sixteen young men to form an organization called the ‘Khasi Young Men’s Association’ on November 23, 1899 to preserve and safeguard the indigenous way of life also known as ‘Niam Trai Niam Tre’. A year later, the Khasi Young Men’s Association celebrated its first anniversary and called it Seng Kut Snem and the occasion is celebrated every year to commemorate that movement.In 1901, the Association was renamed ‘Seng Khasi’. This year the festivities marked the 118th anniversary of the Seng Khasi Movement.
