 Description:

“Naga Tales: Dawn” by Dr. Achingliu Kamei is the inaugural installment in a captivating series. This book delves into a treasury of genuine Naga folktales, masterfully retold by the esteemed author. The Nagas, an indigenous community residing in the North Eastern region of India and North Western Myanmar, boast a population of approximately 4 million individuals. Renowned for their indomitable spirit, valor, vibrant culture, and unyielding identity, the Nagas have nurtured a rich tapestry of oral traditions comprising folktales, myths, songs, and poems, which have been transmitted through generations.

These captivating narratives have been instrumental in teaching children and youth invaluable lessons on survival skills, endurance, ethics, and reverence for nature and humanity. Regrettably, the advent of modern influences such as mass media and urbanization has led to a decline in the practice of these oral traditions and expressions within Naga society. Recognizing the urgency of preserving the legacy of the traditional storytelling culture, “Naga Tales: Dawn” serves as a remarkable endeavor to immortalize these tales in written form.

The primary objective of this book is to forge a profound connection between the younger Naga generation and their ancestral heritage, instilling within them a deep sense of pride in their cultural roots. Moreover, it aspires to offer readers worldwide a captivating glimpse into the ancient traditions, social norms, beliefs, ethics, and value systems prevalent in Naga society. Through its pages, “Naga Tales: Dawn” unveils the historical, customary, and traditional aspects of the Nagas, elucidating their intricate social relationships, interplay with nature, spirits, and the animal kingdom.

Join Dr. Achingliu Kamei on a remarkable journey as she presents a captivating anthology, bridging the gap between the past and the present, while illuminating the timeless wisdom contained within the Naga folklore.
