Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the experience of the authors at Zeme Naga villages in Assam. It talks about the religions followed by the people and the architecture of the houses in the region. The chapter relates the interaction of the authors with Mrs.Evelyn. Zeme Naga villages are usually situated on a hilltop or a slope, with houses along both sides of the village 'street'. Sitting platforms are found in most villages, while granaries stand at some distance from the village. Houses are built on ground level with a low plinth, and typically consist of three rooms, one behind the other: entrance room, main room and sleeping room. There is also an open front veranda and a closed back veranda. House construction is of wood, while the wall covers use woven flattened bamboo; the floor is clay and the roof is thatched.

Keywords: Assam; Mrs.Evelyn; wood; woven flattened bamboo; Zeme Naga villages
