NAGA
 
The Naga belong to the Tibeto- Myanmar group that diverted to the west. There are approximately 49 sub-groups differentiated by their spoken language. The most prominent of these sub- groups are "Summra Naga", "Htangan Naga", "Sann Naga", and "Htemye Naga". The southernmost point of the Naga Hill Tracts is the sources of the Chindwin River and the northernmost point is India-Myanmar border. The Naga can be found on both sides of the India-Myanmar border. They live mostly around the Patkoi Ranges and on the western hills of the Chindwin River's sources.
Naga are stout and sturdy. Their hats are made of cane and decorated with tusks of the wild boars, bird feathers, bear fur and human hairs. Their dress is usually a cane covering polished with natural gum of the tree or a small cloth over the genitals and nothing more. A sword is worn on a belt decorated with goatskins, lacquered bamboo or beads. A necklace of red and blue beads is worn around the neck.
The female dress is a bare minimum, to preserve modesty only. The females also tattoos their foreheads and chins.
The biggest Naga festival is the New Year Festival called the Kaing Bi. They practice the custom of "boys' house" and "girls' house".The highest compensation involves any offence connected with their small agriculture plots. Their dances with the shield are connected with the martial arts.
