Who are Sunuwar People?

sunuwargirl1We need further more investigation and historical research to find the fact about the origin of Sunuwar people. However, Sunuwar peoples believe themselves as Suryavanshi, family of the Sun. It is said that Sunuwar tribe is from Kirat group. According to history, there were three states of Kiratas in Eastern Nepal- Far Kirat, Mid Kirat and Near Kirat. Mid Kirat and Far Kirat are known as Rai and Limbu respectively. And the Near Kirat is known as Sunuwar who spread over the river-bank of Sunkoshi, Likhu and Khimti and slowly they spread all over the world.

The group Sunuwar is known as Indigenous Peoples of Nepal. Sunuwar peoples have their own socity, cultural aspects, costumes, and language so they are called indigenous people. In the time of Shah Dynasty, The King of the country became happy with the administrative works, armed service and other territorial works of Sunuwar peoples and His Majesty’s granted the title of “Mukhiya”. Still some Sunuwar peoples add the title “Mukhiya” at the end of their name. It is also believe that the group “Jirel” and “Surel” are also the sub-group of Sunuwar, but now Jirels are recognized as an independent tribal caste. On other hand, some Surels believe themselves as Sunuwar and still some of them put their lastname as Sunuwar. Sunuwars have own ethnic identity like language, costumes, cultures etc. Now a days, Sunuwars are also involved in national indigenous group of people for the developement, preservation and for the promotion of the Sunuwar peoples and for the developement of the Nation as well.

First of all thanks for this Website maker and other he who commented positively . And Sunuwar people still facing Identity crisis . So here I like to say that ;-
१ सुनुवार र सुनार मा Confuse न हुनुहोस / हामी “सुनुवार” नै हौँ / आदिबासी जनजाती सुनुवार /
२ नाम पछी प्रचलन अनुसार “जात” नै आउँछ , तसर्थ जात सुनुवार नै हो /
३ “थर” र मुखिया भन्ने “पदवी” ले प्रस्ट जातीय परिचय दिदैन / त्यसैले “सुनुवार” नै लेखौं भन्ने मेरो ठहर हो / देश बिदेशमा परिचित र अहिले सम्म प्रचलित पनि यहि हो /
४ Dr. Rapach ji ले भन्नु भए जस्तै स्वामी प्रपन्न चार्य ले सुनुवार बारे उल्टा सुल्टा लेखेका छन् ,त्यसमा ध्यान नदिनुस् /
५ हिन्दुबाद सामन्तबाद को अर्को खुट्टा हो /
६ सामन्तबाद को अन्त्य पछी मुखिया पदवी पनि अब उपयुक्त रहेन /
टेक बहादुर सुनुवार “औतारी “
