Tribal Religion: Continuity and Change Among The Tangkhul Naga

 
Rimai Joy (Author)
Synopsis

Religion is a set of beliefs and practices generally held by an individual and community, involving adherence to codified rituals. Special emphasis of this study is indigenous religion, its organisation and functioning in the traditional and modern context.  This anthropological study maps the traditional indigenous religion of the Tanghkul Naga tribe of Manipur, Northeast India. The research goes back to the history of Tanghkul Nagas to find out about the traditional religion (Hao), its rituals, festivals, customs and practices. Thereafter, it explores the process of change that has occurred with the coming of western missionaries and introduction of Christianity. It studies the correlation, continuity and change in the institution of religion from their traditional Hao religion to Christianity. It further talks about cultural renaissance wherein conscious efforts are being made by the local people to revive their nearly forgotten traditions and culture.
