Abstract:
An analysis of the Ao Nagas shows that there has been a change in all sphere of life particularly, after the dawn of Christianity. Changes have occurred or have accomplished partly by means of force, as in the case of the change in political control with all of its implications and the activities of Christian missionaries towards their culture. Other changes have occurred as a result of suggestion and imitation, due to the influence of commerce, the British Government and modern education. In some instances the changes have been abrupt, while in others they have been gradual. In certain cases the consequences of change have been of a higher order, while in others there has been a distinct decline in quality.
