Summary:
An exploration of the Nagaland Region, which extends from Northeast India into Northern Myanmar, this film both documents the ancient rituals that preserve the proud traditions of the sixteen Naga tribes still living in these remote forests and examines how Naga society has adapted to survive in contemporary times. War and fertility, important concepts in Naga culture, remain dominant in the rituals, which underscore traditions of headhunting, tattoos, and bravery. Interviews with community leaders and scenes of daily life balance these rituals, illuminating how the Naga accommodate those traditions to the intrusions of the modern world. Nagaland reveals a culture that remains rich and complex even as its basic underpinnings have fewer and fewer outlets for expression in the present.
