Ethnic people of Bangladesh
The word race comes from the race, which is derived from the Greek word ethnos meaning “nation”. The now-one-day term refers to individuals with a common lineage and specific culture. So, in short, ethnic people refer to people of the same nationality but different artists, cultures, traditions, and religions.
There are about thirteen species in our country and most of them live in the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT). Chakma, Marmas, Chuck, Mero, Miring, Santal, and Tripura are the most popular species in Bangladesh. They live mainly in the hills, although many of them have recently settled in the plains. In addition to CHT, some people living in Sylhet, Maulvi Bazaar, Patukhali, and Jessore are scattered in different parts of Bangladesh. The ethnic people of Bangladesh mainly follow Buddhism, but also some Christians, Hindus, and Muslims.
The ethnic people living in CHT are mainly dependent on agriculture. But their cultivation method is different for the plains. They are cultivated on the mountain slopes known as Jam cultivation and were once called Jumma due to Jam cultivation. Other species hunt, breed, and collect food and timber from forests. They work very hard and they usually eat two meals a day, one in the morning and the other in the evening. Their living space and style are different to ours.
Ethnic people have different cultures and languages. But many of them do not have a written form of their language. In the recent past and even today, they are facing many problems living in the hills because many Bengali landless farmers have settled there. New settlements began to be ethnically displaced
