Introduction
Nepal Tamang Ghedung (NTG) is an autonomous and non-profit making Tamang People's national organization. It was reorganized in 1988 and registered with His Majesty's Government of Nepal in 1990. The 51 member national executive committee is the decision making body in between two National Conventions at the national level. NTG has its own branches in 62 districts of Nepal and 500 village level committees all over the country.

Historical Overview

The Tamang is one of the most populated indigenous communities in Nepal. Its population is about 3 million and is densely populated in the central part of the country and sparsely populated all over the country. We have our own distinct Como vision, language, culture, social system and religion different from the mainstream Hindu state. The Tamang people were self-ruled and autonomous until 232 years back.

In the last two hundred years' history, the Tamang are the most discriminated and exploited community in the country due to their proximity to the capital and peoples of different language, culture, religion and governance system from the ruling group. They were neither accepted in the bureaucracy, military, administrative, judicial and political system nor allowed to go to foreign countries for the better employment till 1950. They were put as reserve labor pool for the services of the ruling group. According to the 1856 civil code of Nepal, their status was as Shudra (second lowest rank in the Hindu hierarchical system) which can be killed and enslaved until the new civil code formulated in 1962. The 1954 civil code was racist law based on the Hindu Manusmriti and Varna System.

After the democratic change in 1950, the Tamang Peoples for the first time got organized themselves in 1956 but it was banned in 1960 with the political parties when the late king Mahendra took over the power from the elected government. The people were prohibited from getting organized till the Peoples Movement of 1990 A.D.
