The fearsome gun-toting Konyak headhunter tribe live in the remote Nagaland hills of NE India. An area few tourists visit. During the first week of April the Konyaks hold the Aoling Festival which celebrates the beginning of the spring season. These images depict the traditional headhunter culture of Konyak men and women that I met during the 5 day festival held in small Konyak villages on the border of India and Burma. The tattoos on men's faces and chests, and brass skull-head necklaces around their necks symbolise how many human heads the older men have taken during their life.
