The Sacred Culture of Nagas; The Last Beat
Posted by SiteAdmin on Sunday, October 24 @ 01:20:45 IST (45 reads)
Articles In a workshop held in Chicago, I was asked, "what is one thing that constitutes you as a Naga?" I said, much of our culture, religion and life style have been destroyed. The last remains are our dresses, dance and our languages. We don't wear those dresses, but there is symbolic meaning in all of them. Be it male or female dresses, we have reverence, respect for it. When we die, our body is finally wrapped in it.
The latest Durga ma issue is the beginning of the final assault on Nagas. It sounds funny but it is not. For more than a hundred years, we have been attacked. First, our religion was taken away 130 years ago. Then our culture was dismissed as savage. Then, we were disintegrated among many states. What do we have now? Some few remains of our dress, dances and language. (contd...)

Press Release - Goddess Durga and Her Family in Traditional Naga Attire in a Puja Pandal in S.Kolkota: An Offense.
OCT 19 : The Anthropological Society of Nagaland takes an exceptional offense to the photo news items published in Nagaland Post on 19.10.04 showing Goddess Durga and her family dressed in traditional Naga attire in a puja pandal in South Kolkota on Monday.
For the Nagas, dress and ornaments are not just items of clothing and personal adornments but each motif, design, color combination etc have specific cultural significance and social values unique to each Naga tribe. To the Nagas, it is more than aesthetics and there are various cultural norms attached to their traditional attire, which are gender specific and cannot be used otherwise at any time. (contd...)
