Group of Chakhesang Naga men and children, photographed by Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf more than 80 years ago.
Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf captured a group of Chakhesang Naga men and kids on camera more than 80 years ago. It depicts a gathering of adults and kids who are Chakhesang Nagas in a community.
Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf, an anthropologist from Austria who traveled to the Naga Hills in the 1930s, took the picture. This image is one of a series that Fürer-Haimendorf photographed when he was in the area because he was interested in capturing the customs of the Naga people.
According to the general comment that goes with the picture, as Fürer-Haimendorf entered the settlement, people began to assemble and follow him about. This shows that Fürer-Haimendorf’s and his work piqued the interest of the individuals in the shot.
A priceless historical document of the Chakhesang Naga people can be found in this image.
