Run by the Salesian order of the Catholic Church, the Don Bosco Centre for Indigenous Culture is a treasure house for information and knowledge about the culture of the numerous tribes that live in the North East of India. Covering the seven sister states of Meghalaya, Mizoram, Assam, Tripura, Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland, the Don Bosco Centre for Indigenous Culture displays artifacts that showcase the life and fabric of the indigenous tribes of this region.
Divided into different galleries and further into different categories, the Don Bosco Centre for Indigenous Culture is a one stop source for information on the culture of the North East. Galleries like the Photo Gallery, Musical Instruments gallery and Agriculture gallery are just a few in the large number of galleries that make up this centre. The Otto Hopfenmueller Library, with its collection of books and periodicals relating to the culture of the area, further adds to the information trove that the Don Bosco Centre for Indigenous Culture brings to those visiting here. A visit to the centre is a definite must if you want to understand and learn about the history and culture of the people of the North East. Another aspect that the centre offers its visitors is the Skywalk from where you get an amazing view of Shillong laid out in all its beauty for your enjoyment and pleasure.
