Each tribe can be categorised separately by the dress they wear, jewellery, and the dances they perform. Socially these societies follow three types of lineage system which include the matriarchal, patrilineal as well as patri-matrilineal societies. Along with separate festivals these tribes have their own dialects or languages.
