Synopsis

"When you go home, tell them of us, that for their tomorrow, we gave our today," reads and epitaph in the Second World War Cemetery of Kohima-the Capital of Nagaland. This state is the home of the brave and daring, yet simple and innocent, Naga tribes. Lapped in the eastern frontiers of the Himalayan mountain range Nagaland is marked by an unhurried pace of life, calm and serene environs and fresh, unpolluted air, which make a welcome change for a jaded city dweller. The Nagas belong to the Indo-Mongoloid family. The major Naga tribes are the Angami, Ao, Chakesang, Chang, Khemiangan, Konyak, Lotha, Phom, Pochury, Rengma, Sangtam, Sema, Yimchunger Zeliang. Each tribe has their own languages and cultural features. They are living in the present Nagaland, Hills of Manipur (Senapati, Tamenglong, Ukhrul, Chandel districts), in the North Cachar, Mikir Hills Lakhimpur, Nowgaon, Sibsagar in Assam, in the North-East of Arunachal Pradesh, in the Somra-tract and its contiguous parts of Mayanmar.

Nagas attempt to deal with the concerns of a modern society, a consensus has grown that the solkutions to many of the present problems lies in the abandoned traditions of the pat. The present study emphasizes this by giving ethnographic details.
