Role of A•gate in Garo Society, Meghalaya

Country India
Abstract In the landlocked hill state of Meghalaya, one of the largest tribes is the Garos, a Tibeto Burman group. They adhere to a patriarchal and matrilineal structure. Matrilocal is the basis for the residence. After marriage, the groom live with the bride and start a family. Another important part of Garo society is the duty and responsibilities of the A•gate and Chawari towards the clan and family. Compared to the Heiress and her spouse, A•gate and Chawari have distinct roles and responsibilities. In order to establish a family, the Chawari and his spouse must move out of their in-laws' home and construct a new home on the land that has been provided to them. A Nokkrom, unlike a Chawari, will not have to leave the in-laws' home after getting married. In contrast to the Nokna, the A•gate would only receive a limited plot of land on which to construct a home, engage in agriculture, and survive. Sometimes the family does not give A•gate any movable or immovable property.
It will first attempt to determine A•gate's and Chawari's roles within the Garo Society. Second, examines into how A•gate and Nokna's responsibilities to the families and clan differ. Lastly, if at all possible, provide any suggestive measures.
Keywords A•gate, Chawari, Responsibilities.
