Nagas, like many indigenous people of the world, do not have any written history; but there is of course, no way to roll back history and duplicate the past. Though the cultural diffusion in the past 200 years or so has caused many characteristics of Naga Society to become diluted or disappeared altogether; today Nagas are still at that point of time when general and fairly accurate picture can be put together because if much has been changed in Naga Culture, much also remains unchanged.
