The Headhunters of Nagaland by Thomas Groves

In the north east of India, bordering with Myanmar, is the city of Long Wa which is home to the last living headhunters of Nagaland. These older tattooed men are surrounded by green forests prosperous with nature and who live a traditional way of life.

Recently I published an article in Expat Life in Thailand about my trip to Long Wa, India. In Long Wa I photographed some of the last living head hunters in this area. My images reflect that these men are ordinary men who hold great respect amongst their community. 

Staying with these men for 11 days was an amazing experience which opened my eyes to a culture which is quickly fading away. Long Wa is located on the border between India and Myanmar. The people are strong and very open but also very curious as not many outside visitors stop by or stay for a long period of time.
