Boro bwisagu dance in traditional attire.
The Bodo people are one of the major indigenous ethnic groups of Assam, a northeastern state of India. They are primarily found in the Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR), which is an autonomous region within Assam.
The Bodos speak the Bodo language, which belongs to the Tibeto-Burman family. It has its own script, but the Roman script is also used.
The Bodo culture is rich and diverse, with its own unique customs, rituals, and festivals. The Bwisagu festival, also known as the Bodo New Year, is one of their most important festivals.
Traditional Bodo attire for women includes a Mekhela (wrap-around skirt) and a Sador (scarf) worn over a blouse. Men typically wear Dhoti and Chadar (a type of wrap-around garment).
