Details of Districts in Nagaland


Mon is the land of the captivating Konyak Naga. Konyaks are known for their tattooed faces, blackened teeth and head hunting prowess, the last thankfully being in the past. When they appear in the markets to sell their agricultural produce, the Konyaks cut an impressive figure among the uninitiated. The village head, Angh, enjoys considerable power over his people – his house is a reflection of tribal power and glory and flashes both human and animal skulls alike on the porch.
