Abstract

The Nagas have unique cultural identity and traditional practices which had been transmitted orally since time immemorial. After the advent of the British to the region in 1832 and the subsequent spread of education thereafter, oral narratives began to be gradually preserved in print. Of late, there has been a steady shift in the dynamics of Naga narrative from print to screen. The film Axone by Nicholas Kharkongor though not a film about the Nagas per se has highlighted the issues of identity faced by North Easterns in mainland India and how ‘axone’(a Sumi Naga term for fermented soyabean) gives the North Easterns in Delhi a sense of shared identity. The present paper studies the shift of Naga identity from oral narrative to the big screen.

Key Words

Oral narratives, Naga identity, Axone, films.
