"Nagaland, the Last of the Head Hunters" is an exploration of the Nagaland Region, home of the Naga tribes which are based in North East India and Northern Burma.

The intention of the documentary is to present this ancient tribal culture in its contemporary  form. 

The rituals are where the concepts of war and fertility remain dominant.  These rituals underscore traditions of headhunting, tattoos and bravery. 

The film  “Nagaland, the Last of the Headhunters” depicts scenes of daily life, recorded conversations, particular festivals and family events. 

It bears witness to how this traditional lifestyle blends with the intrusive modern world and the Christian values that the first missionaries introduced at the end of the 19th century. Though these paradigms, the film intends to convey a deeper understanding and clearer perception of the complexity and richness of these tribal cultures.
