Great holmertz 2009-05-07 6:17

Hello Yuwal,
This is an excellent portrait from a part of India where few foreigners are allowed to go. I agree with others who have requested an explanatory note. I would have like to know about the circumstances of this photo and something about the Konyak people. I am even curious of how you managed to enter Nagaland and Arunachal.
Regards,
Gert

Default To holmertz: Naga Konyak

it's my secund time to Nagaland - This time as a tour guide.
Visited in Mizoram and Arunachal, and not for the last time...

The Naga are people living in the states of Arunachal, Assam, Manipur and above all in Nagaland.
Some of them are living in Burma.
The Konyaks are distinction Nagas, centering in the north of Nagaland, mostly in Mon district.
They have 6 Anges (Chiefs, kings) controlling all Konyak villages.
This picture was taken in the biggest konyak village of Longwa Ė situated half on brumes land and half on Indian land.
Just old men are still tattooed, and in the following series Iíll bring some of those wariers faces.
Enjoy!

Hello Yuval,
Thanks a lot for your reply. Tour guide, well that explains a lot...
I was recently in Assam and Meghalaya and would love to see the other neighbouring states, but the strict regulations make it difficult for me.
Regards,
Gert
