DESIGN STASH / HEADHUNTING FOLKTALE
Posted by: NeBuzz Uploaded: 30-Jun-15





Storytelling is such an important part of any culture. And especially among the Naga tribes, their history, traditions, culture are passed on and remembered through these folktales. One of the most interesting things about the Nagas was that some of the tribes used to headhunt. Though headhunting has been eradicated since conversion to Christianity, it's still an interesting part of history. So, the second folktale is about the origins of headhunting among the Nagas. 


‘Shadows’ is a collection of illustrated folktales from Nagaland produced by the Design Stash team in collaboration with the Department of Art and Culture, Government of Nagaland. There are seven stories in the collection, taken from a broad spectrum of themes encompassing legends, superstitions, songs and proverbs. Each of these stories presents a context to the cultural heritage of the Naga tribes, which is transformed into a graphic medium from the oral.
