Review About the Book

The book has been widely appreciated as a representative work in the field of Ao-Naga oral-cultural practices, the first one to be written by an insider after colonial anthropological writings about the Nagas. The work is informative and engaging; informative because the analytic perspective that it provides goes beyond the colonial constructions; engaging because the work derives its energy from the author's intimate cultural experience. as a creative writer, she brings her cultural sensitiveness into her writing. The work is of a different order in which Prof. Ao deepens the dialogic relation with her own cultural archive in weaving diverse threads of Ao Naga oral-culture practices into a multi-coloured quilt. i wish more books to come our of her pen, for generations of scholars and students will immensely benefit from her deep insights in understanding the thick descriptions of oral cultures. Such work will certainly enrich the Ao-naga ethnic knowledge archive.
