Konyaks love colour, their favourites being red, yellow and orange. The Aoling festival flowers are the red Coral Tree flowers, red lilies and yellow orchids.

The women love their necklaces made of brightly coloured plastic beads. Men can be seen wearing necklaces made of tusks of boars and teeth of deer as minor trophies. They also show these off as a sign of their ‘manhood’ and hunting skills; women don’t hunt so don’t wear animal parts. I bought a necklace with deer teeth but will neither wear it nor flaunt any non-existent hunting skills. It hangs in my living room.

Another beautiful neckpiece! A Konyak tribe member in Nagaland.
