 Ever since we grow up Join College and step into a fast growing competitive generation, secularly and academically we experience exceptional growth and progress. However, similarly the fading and erosion of indigenous ethos is also swift either. The chief focuses of the world happen to be advancement with new development, bringing new methods and running after newest research theories and productions. We all busy running after this fast growing competitive world. In the mean time indigenous cultural and traditional ethos are also severely sinking. Looking through the way of life particularly our young Nagas generation today, knowing his origin and accepting his existing lineage is been often despised and ignored. Inclusive advancement of human standard, cross culture adaptation and particularly the western thoughts and its way of education has made our way of thinking global and liberalized our approaches. When we look into post modern social scenario ours may not be exceptional but not less than any other existing society in the world. However in the process the knowledge of our own unique identity is been compromised and neglected but praised and press on to adapt foreign culture and even excels in many fields. Not intended to discourage about excelling in other cultures and studies, but embedding the concern of resurging our valuable culture and tradition amidst advancing because it is our identity. Many young people considered indigenous tradition and culture as primitive and unexciting. Learning and preserving of folklores seems irrelevant to many smart and intelligent people. Various contemporary philosophical thoughts and concept, advancement of science and technology has already preoccupied many minds. However no matter how advance we become with foreign cultures and traditional ethos we will be a Naga and to keep our Naga identity we must not confused or ignorant about our basic cultural evidences such as our own tribal dialect, historical account, costumes and its implication, folklores etc, which gives a good account of our origin. Ignorant or clueless about Naga history, culture and traditional ethos is a great shame to claim oneself as a Naga or belong to Naga. Likewise claiming or consider oneself belongs to a particular tribe without having the basic etiquette of tribe such as dialect, cultural and traditional beliefs is a lost person.
