Click to Read

The mountain ranges known as the Naga Hills straddle the border between India and northern Burma. Despite considerable investment in schools, hospitals and roads on the Indian side, the Naga people of Burma remain almost entirely undeveloped and headhunting has been reported from the region as recently as the 1980's. At the time of this report in 1927 the writer George Orwell was a member of the Colonial Police Force stationed in the Sagaing region which included the homelands of the Naga peoples.
