The Naga Ethnic Movement for a Separate Homeland

The ninth chapter travels back to Haflong and traverses to the Zeme Naga village of Mpuilo. Set amidst the beauty of the Barail ranges, this Zeme village exposes the impact of the Naga conflict including that of counter-insurgency on both young and old. I recount the story of Pojei and Adeu (names changed), two young Zemes who shared with me their dreams and their views on how they see their lives evolve. This chapter introduces you to the impact religion has had on the conflict and the role of the church in the life of the ordinary Naga.
