Konyaks: The Headhunters of Nagaland SKU: 108624


Konyaks were feared as (human) head hunters – a warrior’s status in society was determined by the numbers of heads he could flaunt. But it was never a sport – combat was only in battle or to avenge the killing of any fellow villagers and relatives. The heads of slain enemies were brought back as trophies. Of course, things have changed now. Join the Konyaks in the celebration of the annual Aoling Festival and get to know them better in the e-book.
