An Angami Naga Home

Here we visit a beautiful Angami Naga home.  The family maintains a traditional style house with all the trappings that reveal their elevated status as givers of community feasts.  Alas, the days of community feasts are all but gone, there are a few areas where it is still possible to see the fantastic carved panels, crossed roof struts and mithun skulls that allude to the glory days of Naga culture.  Note the grave in the front yard.  As you know the majority of Nagas are Christian, and in the Angami villages it is common to bury family members at home.
