Meetei Yelhou Mayek Meetei Yelhou Mayek

Meetei Yelhou Mayek is an old script for Manipuri, a member of the Kuki-Chin-Naga branch of the Tibeto-Burman language family spoken in Manipur and Assam in the northeast of India.

It was revived in the 1930s by Laininghan (Prophet) Naoriya Phulo (1888-1941), a Meitei religious, social and political leader, who founded a Meitei religion revivalist school called Apokpa Marup in Assam. He called the script Meetei Yelhou Mayek. It is also known as Naoriya Phulo script or the Naoria script

The are seven Meitei clans (sagei). The head of each Sagei Pibas, used bronze coins (laisen) for their rituals. The coins had inscriptions on them in an old script. Naoriya Phulo used the inscriptions as the basis for a script which he called Meetei Yelhou Mayek ("Meeitei Indigenous Script"), and which he used to rewrite holy texts.

Followers of the Apokpa Laining faith continue to use Meetei Yelhou Mayek in their religious texts, and teach the script in religious schools and temples. There are also some other books in the script, and a newspaper.

Some sources argue that Naoriya Phulo created the script, rather than reviving an old script.
