Details

The Naga tribes, long feared as headhunters by their neighbours, inhabit the south-eastern foothills of the Himalayas. This volume, comprising interviews, pictorial essays and chapters by Naga and Western authors, surveys the tribes’ society, their unique material culture (from architecture to bodily ornaments) and their oral traditions of story and song. Excerpts from 19th- and 20th-century anthropological research illustrate how Nagas’ identity has changed as a result of British colonial rule and the long struggle for autonomy following Indian independence.
