The Charismatic Protagonist of the Movement

(p.14) 2 Phizo
(p.iii) The Naga Ethnic Movement for a Separate Homeland

Namrata Goswami

Oxford University Press

The second chapter deals with the life of A.Z. Phizo, the charismatic leader of the Naga National Council (NNC). It details his entry into the conflict, his role during the fight against British rule in Naga-inhabited areas as well as his role in the formation of the Naga National Council. The chapter provides a glimpse of his motivations as well as life trajectory as a rebel leader including his successes and disappointments. It was Phizo who created the conditions and narrative for the subsequent Naga movement for a separate homeland and was instrumental in conducting a plebiscite in Naga areas in 1951. The chapter highlights his role as the father of the Naga movement.
