Mim Kut

Mim Kut is a festival celebrated before the hard work in the jhum was over in September. The festival lasting for one or two days would be in memory of someone who had died the previous year. Fresh vegetables, maize bread, necklaces and cloth would be placed on the memorials of the dead as offerings to them. It was believed that the spirits of the dead would revisit their house during the Mim Kut. Zu (home made rice beer) would be taken in houses in which someone had died during the year. On the second day, everybody would have a meal of bread.
