Naga identities: changing local cultures in the northeast of India


Naga identities: changing local cultures in the northeast of India. Edited by: Oppitz, Michael; Kaiser, Thomas; von Stockhausen, Alban; Wettstein, Marion (2008). Gent, Belgium: Snoeck.

Abstract

Over the past 150 years the Naga hill tribes inhabitating the border region between India and Burma were hit by three violent shockwaves: British colonial rule, Christian missions and the Indian state. Each of these has left lasting marks on both the traditional way of life and the self-perception of the indigenous population. This book explores, from different perspectives, the transformations that happened to these unique traditions.

Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
