Abstract: In the last couple of decades there have been several incidents of violence between different ethnic groups and communities residing in the Autonomous Councils of Assam. Tensions in the three Autonomous Councils soon emerged after several militant groups were formed asserting to protect their ethnic identity. The article attempts to explore the complex ethnic heterogeneity of these regions and how insurgency had disrupted their normal lives and their group-identity which primarily emerge from the territory they dwell in.
