Celebrated from 1st till 7th of December every year within the confines of a heritage village called Kisama, Hornbill Festival is an annual cultural extravaganza celebrated by the tribal people in Nagaland. Named after hornbill, a bird that shows up in the folklore of most of the state’s tribes, the festival brings the culture and heritage together under one umbrella and gives us a glimpse of life in Nagaland. I have added some more color to the colorful hornbill, with weavers, wildlife and islands of Assam.
