9780972506625: Naga Tribal Adornment: Signatures of Status and Self

Naga traditional adornment exhibits a variety, profusion and complexity of beads and natural elements-rarely found in tribal Asian, or even African societies-that combine to create a vibrant, distinctive aesthetic. For time immemorial, among the many distinct Naga Tribes, ornaments were not merely accessories, but powerful symbols that defined both the self individually and within the tribe, connoted status and signified martial exploits. Social change brought to this remote, rugged, northeast corner of India by British and then Indian rule, Christian missionaries, and Western education, gradually eroded their perceived relevance. As modern Nagas seek a renewed sense of who they are, they are embracing the past to shape the future. Naga Tribal Adornment complements a temporary exhibition of the same name at The Bead Museum of Washington D.C., the first public showing of material drawn from the Harry L. and Tiala Marsosang Neufeld Collection, perhaps the largest private holding of traditional Naga art and artifacts.

About the Author:

Ayinla Shilu Ao was born in Kohima, Nagaland, but received all her formal education outside the state; boarding schools in Darjeeling and Bangalore and universities in Delhi (Miranda House and Delhi University) and Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This has become her area of specialization as a writer and consultant. She has written on the Nagas for French GEO and the catalogue for a photo-exhibit on the nagas at the Crafts Museum in Delhi and at the Musee de l'Homme in Paris, for which she was also a consultant. She continues to compile and document Naga traditions so that they can be recorded before they are forgotten.
