Naga: a People Struggling for Self Determination
Since more than 50 years, an indigenous people living in the mountainous Northeastern corner of the Indian Subcontinent has fought a silent war. Silent because this war has been largely ignored be the world. Ever since the Nagas have been in contact with outside powers they have fiercely resisted any attempt of subjugation. The British colonizers managed to control only parts of the rugged Naga territory, and their administration in many of these areas was only nominal. But the Naga´s struggle for self determination is still continuing. Devided by the international boundary, they are forced to oppose both the Indian and Burmese domination.
