Drenjongke [NEW]

Samar Sinha, Coordinator of the Endangered Languages Programme of Sikkim University, writes:

Drenjongkhe (and its several alternate spellings) is a community in Sikkim too. Historically a migrant community from Tibet, settled in Sikkim. Hence, this migrant came to be known as Drejongkhe/Sikkimese Bhutia to distinguish from the Tibetans (refugees after the Chinese occupation). Their language and script, hence, known by the same name.
