Naga is the blanket term for dozens of tribes each with their own distinct dialect living near the Indian border, only accessible by nerve-shredding motorcycle journeys and on foot

Men working as they prepare for the upcoming overnight ceremony by Naga tribeswomen to bless the harvest. It will be the men’s turn in a few weeks’ time, once the newly designated land is fully cleared and ready for planting

Dressed in black, wearing orange bead necklaces and palm leaf headbands, they rotate around a fire in Satpalaw Shaung village, hands held tightly and braving the cold with bare arms

Villagers sit next to a campfire for warmth as Naga tribeswomen continue the ceremony. “The song is a prayer to bring success to the hill farms this coming year”

At dawn, the villagers continue to watch the ceremony

The women continue their ritual through dawn; with temperatures plummeting it is a test of physical endurance, only helped by an occasional draught of rice wine

As the roosters crow and the sun rises, youngsters are welcomed into the circle
