Mon is the land of the captivating Konyak Naga. Konyaks are known for their tattooed faces, blackened teeth and head hunting prowess, the last thankfully being in the past. When they appear in the markets to sell their agricultural produce, the Konyaks cut an impressive figure among the uninitiated. The village head, Angh, enjoys considerable power over his people – his house is a reflection of tribal power and glory and flashes both human and animal skulls alike on the porch. Mon district is a home to the Konyak Nagas tribe and it is very interesting and intriguing to see tattooed faced locals. Of course, those were the times when everybody would be scarred with tattoos when they enter adulthood, nowadays that trend is not followed and people can appreciate their natural self.
