Chang is one of the tribes of Nagaland, India. A distinct cultural rite practised by this tribe was headhunting. They believed, the repository of the soul-essence was the head and that taking enemy heads was in effect strengthening and bringing fertility and prosperity to the village. A young man who had not taken a head had little scope for finding a prospective bride for himself, so it was every young man’s dream to be designated as a brave warrior and get married proudly.
