The Mim Kut Festival is a festival of Mizoram, India. It is usually celebrated during the months of August and September, after the harvest of maize.[1] Mim Kut is celebrated with great fanfare by (illegally) drinking rice-beer, singing, dancing, and feasting. Samples of the year's harvests are consecrated to the departed souls of the community.
