The northeastern region of India includes the states of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Nagaland, Meghalaya, Tripura and Mizoram. The entire Northeast India is home to several ethnic groups, who have inhabited this region since antiquity. The Northeast Indian tribes are known for their distinctive culture, ancient language, hand-woven dress and handicrafts, all of which are distinctive and most appealing too. Some of the prominent tribes of the northeast India include Nagas, Khasis, Jaintias, Mizos, Boros, and Cacharis. There are 16 major tribes in untamed Nagaland, which shares a border with Myanmar in remote north east India. These villages are just a few hours from Kohima or to the far-off districts of Mon (renowned for having the last surviving head hunters) and Mokokchung.
