Wait a second. Are you talking about 45,000 Monpa living in the Tawang and Kameng districts of Arunachal Pradesh and another 5,000 on the Tibetan side in China? If so, wouldn't you cite the Monpa on the Indian side? Or is this part of the territorial boundary dispute and Wikipedia has accepted PRC's claims over AP? This should be corrected, as the Monpa would be quite cross if they learned they were included on in the PRC. -- 07:42, 30 November 2004

There is also a discrepancy in this article claiming that it was China venturing south of the McMahon line which caused India to retaliate, setting off the 1962 war. This is a blatant reversal of the facts - Indian patrols stationed north of the McMahon line were first to attack the Chinese outposts, and after diplomatic protests and requests to negotiate, the Chinese opted to retaliate by advancing to their claim lines, followed by a retreat back behind the McMahon line, probably due to supply issues. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:30, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

Good source for material[edit]

I came across a good source of information for this article from the Centre for Bhutan Studies, which is claimed to be the first indepth study into the Monpa people of Bhutan, and seems to be chocked full of information which can be used for this article. The location is The Vital Link: Monpas and Their Forests (Published 2004) --Россавиа Диалог 13:06, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Ethnic subgroups[edit]

Takpa people, Chugpa tribe and Lishipa tribe ought to be better linked from this article. Perhaps a section on ethnic subdivisions would be warranted. --Trɔpʏliʊmblah 22:25, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
