The Legendary Naga Village – A Reader by Lucy & Kevekha Kevin Zehol
Call this slim and very readable book whatever you like ethnography, ethno-history or folklore. But this is an unusual book, unusual because the Zehols are insiders. They belong to the place. They also belong to the community about which they write. This is what we, in Anthropology, call “emic” or insider’s perception of history, culture and social reality. The book is also unusual because the authors have the inhabitants of Khezhakeno and the Naga people in general in mind as their readers. In a way, it is a book ‘by the people, of the people and for the people’.
