 Yimchunger Akherü Arihako (YAA)





The Yimchunger Akheru Arihako (YAA), the erstwhile Yimchungru Students’ Conference (YSC) was originally conceived in October, 1952 where few like-minded intellectuals gathered at Kiussor Village and resolved to coin its nomenclature called the “Yimchunger Students’ Conference”. Consequently, the first meeting was held on 28th February, 1953 at Thsotokur Village. Thereafter, Office bearers were selected among them with P.Thsanphu, Huker Village as the Chairman. Under his leadership, the second meeting was held at Kiussor village in 1954 and the new YSC office bearers were constituted with K.Zungkum, as the Chairman. During the initial years, confrontation between the Naga National Council and Indian Army ensued relentlessly; hence, there were no gatherings/meetings during those turbulent years. After a period of four years or so – in 1959, a meeting was convened at Shamator Town and the new office bearers was inducted headed by K.M. Caming as the Chairman. However, the ebb and flow of armed conflicts in Yimkhiungru region deterred the normal functioning of the YSC and therefore, remained moribund till 1965.

            Albeit, its formation on 28th February, 1953 at Thsotokur village; the YSC was restored to normal functioning only on 7th January, 1966 at Shamator Town as per the YSC Silver Jubilee (Souvenir) held on 18th January, 1991 at Thsotokur Village. Since then,  and thus far, the integrity and legacy of the YAA has been upholding through its successive office bearers. And in commemoration for attaining 50th glorious years of its existence have marked its Golden Jubilee on 18th-20th January, 2016 at Shamator Town.

            Whilst the YAA, in earnest, strives in the vanguard of the progress of student community is committed in bringing about a paradigm shift.
