‘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.
We are excited to share these stories with you, making it available for viewing at regular intervals. Our first folktale comes from the Rengma Naga community. Stay tuned for more every month.
