Abstract: Studies in Northeast India has neglected the importance of kinship institutions and economic life of villages. This research is an attempt to historically trace the significance of kinship in village economy. Kinship is important in the organization of important economic obligations, responsibilities and roles in the village. The study focused mainly on kinship institution of Hausa and Inndongta in a Paite village. These two institutions in the village illustrates the significance of kinship in organizing economic and social life in the village. It also argues that, although these kinship institutions are changing over time, they continue to play an important role and responsibilities in regulating the social and economic activities in the village. This research will be helpful in understanding the role and significance of kinship institutions in village economic life and processes among the Paite.
