 Recommends recognising Tikhir as official tribe 

A day after Commissioner Nagaland convened a consultative meeting on upgrading Shamator on January 13 at the conference hall of the Commissionerate, sources said things have been set rolling for upgrading Shamator as district.
Highly placed sources confirmed with Nagaland Post that the meeting deliberated and agreed that both the tribes– Yimkhung and Tikhir– would not claim Shamator as an exclusive Yimkhiung or Tikhir district, and instead shared by both.
Further, it was also informed that the meeting recommended to recognise Tikhir tribe as an official tribe of Nagaland.
The matter is likely to be taken up in the next cabinet meeting for further approval.
The consultative meeting was attended by Shamator-Chessore legislator S Keoshu, principal secretary to chief minister KD Vizo, principal secretary (home) Abhijit Sinha, convener of 14 Tribes of Nagaland KT Vilie and 10 representatives each from Yimkhiung Tribal Council and Tikhir Tribal Council.
It may be recalled that the State cabinet on January 7 last, decided to constitute a “third party committee” to deliberate/consult on the issue of creation of Shamator district.
He said the cabinet viewed that the local legislator and Eastern Nagaland People’s Organisation should intervene and settle the matter amicably.
