The Last Headhunters of Hongphoi

My name is Buwong, I am 85 years old and I am the Chief of Hongphoi village, Nagaland. Back in the old days, before the missionaries came and invented sin, we would collect the heads of the women and men we killed. I miss the fighting days… After a mission there was always lots of dancing.
