Different Houses - Nagaland Heritage Village
Naga Heritage Village, Kisama which is about 12 Km from Kohima and is permanently created for celebration of this festival. Here, typical Naga boys’ dormitories (morungs) of each tribe are constructed in their respective tribal architectural designs to simulate a real village scene. Naga boys dormitories (morungs) are places where impressionable boys learn to socialize and live in a community, where values of survival are taught against the backdrop of head hunting and constant fear of the enemy and animals. It is also a school where they learn the lessons of life such as bravery,loyalty, honesty and arts and crafts. Here they also learn the oral traditions of their people, their stories, myths and legends and pass it down through the generations.
