Paite are a people dwelling in Bangladesh, Burma, and India. Paite anthropologist H. Kamkhenthang writes that "The Paite as a whole can either be Zomi, Mizo, Chin or Kuki according to the group feeling and group interactions." They use different nomenclatures in Bangladesh, Burma, and India. In India they are recognised as 'Paite', a Scheduled Tribe in the states of Manipur and Mizoram, India.
These days Paite speakers are also found around the world.
