Not much is known about the early history of Mizoram. It is believed that the Mizos migrated to this region hundreds of years ago. However, as per later records, the state of Mizoram used to be a district of Assam. The British entered the hills in 1891 and took possession of the Lushai hills in 1898.

The district was carved out of Assam under the reorganization act of 1971 and raised to the status of a union territory on January 21, 1972. In 1987, Mizoram became the 23rd full-fledged state of the country.
