Naga Land. Voices from Northeast India

With contributions by Kathrin Grotz, Theyiesinuo Keditsu, Dolly Kikon, Aküm Longchari, Zubeni Lotha, Iris Odyuo, Roland Platz and Elisabeth Seyerl

English edition

 

The Naga form a minority in Northeast India and the northwest of Myanmar — and consist at the same time of thirty different ethnicities: three to four million people, with numerous languages, but no central government structures. How do they manage to preserve their traditional history and integrate into altered ways of life? How do their former practice of headhunting fi t together with modern tattoos, fashion, and social media? What role does Christianity play? Authors among others from Naga Land describe various facets of their contemporary and current culture and make the Naga collection of the Ethnological Museum in Berlin appear in a new light, supplemented with contemporary objects. The artist Zubeni Lotha shows the life of the Naga today in impressive photographs.
