“Aoling” the annual spring festival of the Konyaks is celebrated in April after the seed sowing. The celebration comprises of sacrifices of animals, feasting and drinking which culminates with men’s dance in front of the skull house built next to the village chief’s house. Shingachinyu, located very close to the Burmese border, was a rare village with over 200 skulls intact, and the Ang was one of the few who had not embraced Christianity. The following year on returning to the village, the hut had been torn down due to pressure from the church and the students unions that thought it brought them shame to have such savage and animist beliefs.
