In “The Dancing Village”, Dr. Easterine Kire brings to children a story to delight as well as to instruct them in the rich Naga cultural folk traditions.
Seven-year-old Rongsen who loved to dance, bridges the inter-cultural divide and gets an entire Ao Naga village dance to the rhythm of a Zeliang Naga dance, leading the two tribes to embrace each other in a celebration of friendship.
The sensitive visualisation of the story by artist Akuo Miachieo adds to the vivid presentation of Naga Village life. ~ A J Sebastian SDB (Former Professor and Head, Dept of English, NU)
