The Tai Buddhist Communities of Assam is a monograph on the life and culture of the Tai Buddhist communities living in Assam written by the Tai scholar Aimya Khang Gohain. This work throws light on the life and culture of the six groups of Tai Buddhist Communities namely the Tai Ahom, Tai Khamti, Tai Phake, Tai Khamyang, Tai Aiton and Tai Turung. This book is a valuable repository of information and insight into the historical, anthropological aspects of these small communities who, inspite of their meagre population strength have been contributing handsomely to the colourful social and ethnic mosaic of Northeast India.
