Textiles have always been a very important part of Naga culture. Among the Nagas two categories of clansmen had the right to adorn themselves in a particular way --- the headhunters and the givers of ceremonial feasts. The headhunters were concerned mostly with ornaments while givers of Feasts of Merit had their position recorded by the clothing they had the right to wear.
Naga chiefs and elders wrap themselves in hand woven blankets during headhunting ceremonies and important Naga village rituals. Most Naga villages have a skull house and each man in the village is expected to contribute to the collection. Europeans were struck by the Naga practice of headhunting. The taking of a head is symbolic of courage. Naga headhunting includes mortification of the rival, ritual violence, cosmological balance, the display of manhood, cannibalism, prestige, and as a means of securing the services of the victim as a slave in the afterlife. The Naga tribes practice headhunting and preserved the heads of enemies as trophies! The Naga hills have been an area of continued resistance as they had long been isolated from outside cultures. The development of a spirit of nationalism and sense of a common identity are relatively new concepts among the Naga people. According to their traditions, each village is an independent republic; initially, they wanted to be free from all outside domination. The Naga make all the goods they use, as was once common in many traditional societies
