About Us


  •    Founded in 1979, NEIHA for its first session held at Shillong in1980 had only 67 members, but today the organization is about 1,500 strong. More than 80 percent of our members are Life Members. Our members are from all the states in the Northeast, and a good number of them are also from other parts of the country and even from other countries (like Bangladesh, Japan, Taiwan, UK, Germany, Canada and the USA). We always publish the Proceedings Volumes of our annual sessions before the next session. These Volumes are considered as very valuable reference materials on Northeast India and are in great demand throughout the country and outside. We also hold two endowments for triennial lectures, namely, H.K. Barpujari Endowment Lectures and H.L. Gupta Endowment Lectures. These lectures are delivered by eminent scholars in Northeast India Studies. Each lecture is published by NEIHA as a book authored by the speaker.  Some of our proceedings volumes and endowment lectures are already out of print and we have been receiving requests for  reprinting. In fact, we are considering reprinting some of those publications.
