The indigenous games of Arunachal Pradesh
Hole Taso Dukanaram
Hole Taso Dukanaram is a rather peculiar game in which involves the imitation of an animal called Hole Taso. This animal is quite like a cat, and runs around beating its chest alternately with both its front paws. Another remarkable feature of this animal is its ability to hold a third leg in the air, while scampering around. Consequently, the game tests a contestant's overall balance, strength and coordination.
The local people call it the struggle of life and death. In this game, the participants assume the role of the hunter and the hunted in the forest. The dilemma of the hapless hunter, who having missed the prey due to poor markmanship, follows and catches up with it and seizes it by the third leg, is also part of the game.
Porok - Pamin Sinam or - fighting
With one leg held in his hand and the other hand on his shoulder, the contestant has one leg to hop on, and achieve his objective of pushing his opponent out of the circle. Any of the two players who falls to the ground, or loses his hold on his leg, or steps out of the circle, is disqualified.
