The Mizo people have occupied the areas surrounding Jampui Hills since the 16th century. As time passed, they became known as the Halam community. As per history, the Mizo people took Jampui Hills in Tripura under the leadership of the Rivung, Zadeng, and Thangluah tribes.

Between the 17th and 18th centuries, Sibuta was observed as one of the greatest Mizo chiefs. However, people believe that the mid-18th century was not a great time for the Mizo community as a dreadful disease called Zawnghri spread, leaving the tribes no choice but to vacate Tripura Jampui Hill.
