 The Festivals of the Nagas

Nagaland is a land of festivals with pageantry, music and feasts. Nagas are very fond of dance and songs even though the styles vary from one tribe to another. The central feature of traditional Naga life is by giving of what has come to be known as Feasts of Merit, in which the splendour of colour and extravagance of Naga life is amply reflected.
