These 2 events constitute the most important landmark in the history of Naga National Movement.
The Naga National Council was democratically formed by the Naga representatives with Eno T. Aliba Imti Ao as the President. The formation of NNC was based on clear identity ground of God’s creation of the Naga race, history, tradition and culture.
The Nagas have our ancient territory known as Nagaland that comprises of all Naga Regions. And originally and historically Nagaland is the Homeland of the Nagas from olden time. And we have been in Nagaland as free Naga people and a sovereign nation.
NNC precisely declared Nagaland independence on 14th August, 1947 a day ahead of India obtained its independence from their nation master, British Empire. And that NNC sent the historic declaration message of Nagaland independence to British India Government, India and United Nations. Briefly speaking, NNC is firmly grounded on the undisputable foundation of Naga historical right.
The deeds and achievements of the past showed that the NNC leaders led by A.Z. Phizo made extensive touring in important Regions as well as other areas too, to let the people understand the right of the Nagas and sovereign Nagaland. With necessary preparation NNC solemnly conducted historic Naga voluntary plebiscite to steadfastly uphold Nagaland independence where 99% voted in honour of Nagaland stand. Truly, the former NNC leaders did well and boldly shouldered together national duties and responsibilities for a bright and happier Nagaland.
Eventually, The Federal Government of Nagaland (FGN) was set up in 1956 and constitutionally guided under the Yehzabo of Nagaland in the teeth of aggressive acts launched by aggressor India.
