The Children of Kohima
Young children in Kohima
The population of Nagaland is entirely tribal, the Nagas belong to the Indo-Mongoloid family. The name 'Naga' was given to the hill tribes by the plains people. This naming proved to be a great unifying force to the tribes now classified as Naga.

Naga children grow to sub-medium height, their hair is generally straight, their skin brownish-yellow and significantly, but their eyes do not show Mongolian form.
The hill tribes in Nagaland have no generic term applicable to the whole race.
A striking characteristic of the Naga tribes people is their hospitality and cheerfulness. To be greeted with a smiling face while traveling on the roads is a common experience. A visitor to a Naga village is heartily received with a warm welcome.
