Dear Nathan,

For written sources here are a few:

Bodo news:    https://bodolandradab.in/

Meitei news:   http://poknapham.in/




Also lots of languages of NEI represented on Facebook, but you usually don't get much connected text. E.g.


There is lots of oral stuff on youtube in many languages of NE India, including feature films in Bodo, Karbi, Mising, Mizo, and several other languages.

Subject: [Tibeto-burman-linguistics] newspapers in TB languages

Dear colleagues,

I am working with a guy who assembles corpora of minority languages and was able to point him to newspaper in Thadou Chin and in Zhuang (I realize it is not TB).

It makes me realize that there may be other very useful newspapers or blogs out there that I don't know about, which we could hoover up. So, if you know of any newspapers or blogs that are in TB languages (other than Tibetan and Burmese), could you please point me to them.

I expect there will at least be some things in Kuki-Chin languages, in particular Mizo.

thank you,
