This web page, Global Sizang Village, is established on 1.1.2000 by the Global
  Siyin Community, a non-political network of the Sizang people in the cyberspace,
  with the aims of:-
  - sharing information among themselves;
  - to cooperate with their other Chin (Zomi) compatriots in their common endeavour
  to transform their homeland, Chin State into an information society in
  preparation to enter the new millennium;
  - and to initiate new partnerships with the wider human community in the Global  Village.

  The Sizang people are mainly the descendents of Pu Suantak and related clans, and
  their adopted sons and daughters. The Sizang valley is situated in the present
  day Chin State, Burma, founded by the descendents of the Pu Suantak, when they
  moved away from their original home in Ciimnuai with other Zo (Chin) people such
  as the Sukte, Thado, Zou, and other related clans.

  The descendents of Pu Suantak are to be found almost every where in the northern
  Chin State in Burma and in Lamka District of Manipur State and Mizoram in India.

  In Mizoram we find many of Boklua's descendents such as the Sailo, Zadenga,
  Paliana, Thanluaha, Thangura, Rivunga, and Rokhuma. Boklua himself, also known as
  Sizanga, was one of the descendents of Pu Suantak. Boklua's father, Ngengu (Nenu)
  who the founder of Lophei village in Sizang valley of Chin State. Prominent among
  the descendents of Pu Suantak in Mizoram and Manipur are the Sailo as they were
  the rulers of Mizoram until the British departure.

  From their original homeland, Sizang valley, the Vaiphei wandered across the
  Tedim - Tonzang area and finally settled in Saikal area of present day Mizoram
  and Lamka district and other districts of Manipur. At present the Vaiphei are
  over thirty thousand in population, outnumbering their brothers who remained in
  Sizang Valley. The Vaiphei are proud to be a member of the Sizang tribe and they
  have maintain high profiles wherever they are.

  There are other descendents of the Suantak clan such as Zamang, who are found
  today in Sizang valley as well as in the Gungal and Heilei areas.

  In literature one come across the name Siyin because the British colonial
  officers employed Burmese people, who have social intercourse with the Sizang in
  the olden days, as interpreters and the word Sizang was corrupted by these
  interpreters into Siyin. Hence, the British adopted the name Siyin for the Sizang.

  The Villagers of the GSV heartily welcome all visitors to their cyber village
  and any kind of advice, comment or criticism from friends in the global community
  is appreciated.
