A Naga chieftain in his traditional attire that includes, among other things, earrings made of exotic bird’s feather.
The Naga tribes of Northeast India are traditionally good hunters and you will still find young naga boys patrolling the remote streets with guns and catapults in search of birds and small animals. This has been a way of life for many generations and thus makes conservation in these area quite problematic. The situation with NSCN insurgency is not helping either. Despite all that, things are changing slowly and people are increasingly getting aware of the immense value of wildlife in the scheme of things.
However, the sad truth is a big chunk of irreplaceable wildlife is forever lost in a mad scramble for food and sport.
