Synopsis: This photographic record illustrates the various aspects of the culture of the area comprising the seven states of India's northeast territories stretching from Tibet in the north to Myanmar (Burma) in the South, among them Nagaland, Meghalaya and Assam. It is a region rarely visited by foreigners where people scarcely known to the western world continue a way of life steeped in ancient ritual which was last examined some 50 years ago. It focuses on the different aspects of life, religious belief and ritual. The geography of this region of contrasts, the origin of its people, their houses, the cult of the sun and the moon, ancestor worship, weaving, dance, beliefs connected to headhunting and matriachal structures are among those aspects given special attention.

From the Publisher: "The Seven Sisters of India" provides a detailed and balanced picture of life in this remote region, which was last examined some 50 years ago. At that time reports were limited in scope and customs such as headhunting were given undue emphasis.

Individual chapters focus on the different aspects of life, religious belief, and ritual. The geography of this region of contrasts, the origins of its people, their houses, the cult of the sun and the moon, ancestor worship, beliefs connected to headhunting and matriarchal structures are among those aspects given special attention.
