NAGA BLANKETS from NAGALAND, BURMA

Nagaland is an area in the northeast part of India, and the northwest part of Myanmar (Burma). Nagas are descendants from Tibet and there are more than 29 different groups in Myanmar alone. In January 2004 I attended a festival in the mountaneous Layshe area. It was the fourth annual New Year Naga Festival where a series of spectaular dance performances took place and was attended by hundreds of chanting Naga tribesmen wearing traditional clothing and headdresses made of hornbill feathers. Women, dressed in colorful beaded necklaces and costumes of hand woven blankets and fabrics, danced and sang traditional songs.
