Hanging above any Naga kitchen fire will be pieces of meat (both pork and beef), that slowly dry out from smoke high above the flames. So a little dried meat is added to a vegetable and this is eaten with rice, along with red chillies

During Aoling village folk wear their traditional attire. Women adorn themselves with traditional jewellery, while the men wear their customary headwear, arm bands, kilts, jewellery, etc. and together they dance to songs of yore. The men also play log drums and indulge in warrior dance rituals with their ancient weapons.

The spring festival of Aoling is celebrated in every village, over a week of festivities. The 
Bamboo dance is performed by both men and women, dressed in traditional attire. The dance involves a gentle jump over bamboo sticks, placed horizontally in parallel spacing over the vertically placed bamboo sticks. Two people sit on either side of the ground and slide the sticks over the vertically placed bamboo sticks. The dance is accompanied by rhythmic music, with the help of which the dancers adjust their steps.

The Konyak basic belief in the concept of “fertility” was foundational to several customs and practices. For example, sexual activity was encouraged between young people as it was considered natural and added to the fertility quotient of the village. It was only with the conversion of village folk into Christianity that these customs faded...

Like all indigenous people , the lifestyle of the Konyaks is defined by simplicity. They are hardworking and live in a close relationship with Mother Earth. Community harmony and the spirit of give and take makes their life smooth, viable and inter-dependent.

Log Gongs were an integral part of Naga life. Hollowed out of huge tree trunks, sometimes 30 to 40 mts. in length and 5 to 6 ft height, they were used like drums to create music on all occasions- from birth to death n festivals to deaths.  Elders drummed to call meetings or to declare emergency when rival groups attacked their village.

The Morungs were grand huge wooden structures, with heavily carved portals.. They were constructed at the village entrance or in a spot to effectively guard the village. Beginning at puberty, young boys were admitted to their respective clan dormitories, where the most important part of their education and acculturation were administered. Today, they are used as a space for social n ceremonial activities.

A Morung or the bachelor house dormitory system was prominent in Naga villages in the olden days.  The Morung, usually situated in the middle of the village, was the focal centre of various village activities- including political, economic and cultural. A typical feature was the Log Gong which was used for drumming.

Weaving of colorful woolen and cotton shawls is a central activity for women of all Naga tribes. One of the common features of Naga shawls is that three pieces are woven separately and stitched together. Weaving is an intricate and time consuming work and each shawl takes at least a few days to complete.

Each tribe has a unique way of constructing their huts. A common practice among all the tribes is decorating the entrances of their dwellings with hunting trophies, which transfer the qualities of the animal to the hunter and his home.

I found Wanching to be a quaint village of about 500 homes. The houses are built with locally sourced materials, mostly bamboo, and are environmentally and seasonally friendly The huts usually have a balcony in front, used for house work or to receive guests. The interiors are functional and centre around the most important feature- the hearth.

The Konyak tribe were notorious for their headhunting and the facial tattoo of the Konyak men was a depiction of this unique cultural practice that distinguished the Konyaks. Various other tattoo design patterns on the bodies of both men and women are a direct visual representation of this unique traditional practice.

Various other tattoo design patterns on the bodies of both men and women are a direct visual representation of this unique traditional practice. #filmmaker #director  #documentary #documentaryfilmmaker #indiandocumentaryfilmmaker #thekonyakofnagaland #tribalwisdom #travelogue #travel #northeastindia #lifeofadventure #anthropologyindia #ethnographyindia #socioculturaldocumentary #indiandocumentaryfilm #ndiandocumentaryfilmmaker #travelswithmycamera #exploringindia #archivaldocumentation #indiandocumentaryfilm #thejourneyisthedestination

"...Education must encompass both the tested wisdom of mankind and training for life in a particular community and culture." "A good educational syetem may be the flower of economic development; it is also the seed." "Education is the key that unlocks the door to modernization." The growing of Christianity is at a faster rate in Naga society than in any other community. The extraordinary growth prompts one to seek for reasons and specifically to ask whether the Christian conception of God may be an important factor in the acceptance of Christianity by so many Naga

The ancient traditions and rituals are nothing more than social obligation for the new generation of Apatanis. Integration into the modern world poses a great challenge to their rich cultural heritage. However, it is the Apatani traditions, customs and rituals which bind them together and give them a strong sense of identity and togetherness and it’s this togetherness and their deep rooted family and social relationships which make them a secure and happy people.

Legang explains, “Her death is not being mourned as she has lived a full life of ninety years. Now, she will be reunited with all her ancestors and watch over her loved ones here as a benevolent spirit.” The women present sing songs, called the penge, where they recall Khoda’s days of childhood, various incidents of her life and the time that they spent together. This honest and pragmatic approach to life is an eye-opener and a point of reflection for me.

Now, she will be reunited with all her ancestors and watch over her loved ones here as a benevolent spirit.” The women present sing songs, called the penge, where they recall Khoda’s days of childhood, various incidents of her life and the time that they spent together. This honest and pragmatic approach to life is an eye-opener and a point of reflection for me. #filmmaker  #director  #documentary  #documentaryfilmmaker  #indiandocumentaryfilmmaker  #apataniofarunachalpradesh  #tribalwisdom  #travelogue  #travel  #northeastindia  #lifeofadventure  #anthropologyindia  #ethnographyindia  #socioculturaldocumentary  #indiandocumentaryfilm  #ndiandocumentaryfilmmaker  #travelswithmycamera  #exploringindia  #archivaldocumentation  #thejourneyisthedestination

Mithun is akin to gold because it commands the highest value in the barter system in Arunachal Pradesh. It is an essential part of festivals and dispute settlements. It is sacrificed in religious ceremonies and rituals as offering to the gods and goddesses.

I witnessed a shamanic ritual in the forest. As we approached a bamboo grove, we heard a distinctive chanting. Two Nyibos were conducting a chicken liver divination.  Legang explained that the Nyibo decides, after examining the chicken liver, which rituals are to be performed to propitiate the spirits for the wellbeing of a particular family, or the community.

Legang explains that the highly esteemed rice beer (also called Opo, Apong, and Chang) can be made of rice, millet, barley or tapioca, and its origin and use are closely associated with myth and ritual. “A house is considered lucky if its women make good rice beer,  we use it freely while working in the fields, at festivals and ceremonies, so it is an important ingredient of our customary life,” says Legang.

Bamboo is particularly symbolic of the Apa Tani way of life. Bamboo architecture keeps the huts warm in winter and cool in summer, and bamboo mats adorn most walls in Apa Tani huts. Agricultural implements are kept in bamboo baskets, bamboo traps are used to catch squirrels and wild roosters, and bamboo chutney garnishes their meals!

Paddy is the lifeline of the Apatani plateau and most work in the fields all day. During the morning, the village wears a deserted air. Most women are out working in the fields except those with infants who are busy with household chores.

The Apa Tani lifestyle was pretty much like that of pre industrial times, with no electricity, water or modern facilities. The village folk were physically active all day, with women working in the fields, children playing n taking care of young siblings, and the elderly busy with odd jobs.

Modern eyes may find them to be materially poor, but they were certainly rich in spirit, with easy laughter and a sense of self contentment that I found enviable

Ekha tells me “We have a very interesting institution called the “buning,” which is a network of friends spread across villages, who are there to help you with anything. I have eight “bunings” who live in different villages, and in fact every person in the village has a number of these close friendships, which sometimes continue through generations. We consider it our moral duty to provide for our buning’s needs.”

The Apa Tani believe in Donyi-Polo- the sun and the moon, through which the supreme Spirit is manifest. They believe that all life is sacred, that this universal spirit resides in everyone n everything and that a harmonious relationship between man and the natural world is essential
 Donyi-Polo has no written scriptures, no idol worship and no fixed place for prayer. The village Shaman, called the Nyibu, acts as the intermediary between man and the world of spirits, and converses with them in a state of trance.

Every Apatani household has a loom and weaving is generally done by women, on open verandahs. The design and color varies between different villages and each tribe has its own  distinctive pattern. Most Apa Tani women traditionally wear an 'Abbi '– a woolen cloth wrapped around the waist, an embroidered shawl, 'Pulye', which they weave themselves.

I think all ladies wearing nose coins look distinctive. In fact,some women tried hard to persuade me to get my nose pierced “You are quite attractive, but with nose coins you will look ravishing,” they would tease me. I toyed with the idea, but realized that this particular cultural signature of beauty might be lost in my urban context!

I filmed the amazing Apatani of Arunachal Pradesh in 2000, as part of a series titled, ‘Tribal Wisdom’- telecast on Discovery n many international channels. Today this seminal documentary is archival- a lasting record of their wisdom traditions.
