Ahoms of present day Assam was established but did not have
any significant impact on the traditional Naga way of life.
However, in the 19th century the British appeared on the
scene and ultimately the area was brought under British
Administration. After Independence this territory was made a
centrally administered area in 1957 administered by the
Governor of Assam. It was known as the Naga Hills Tuensang
Area. This failed to quell popular aspirations and unrest
began. Hence, in 1961, the area was renamed as Nagaland
and given the status of the State of the Indian Union, which

distinctive movements and stand making a circle or other geometrical
shape. After that, the dancers adjust the beats and then start dancing by
stamping the foot on a continuous pace. The dances of this tribe are
interspersed by chanting some set words in chorus and the clapping of
hands. These shouting and chanting provides inspiration to every member
of the group.
