caption: Ramgakpa, one of my Nzemi staff. Ramgakpa comes from a village West of Haflong. The Nzemis here were late-comers, driven out from their original home in the Lakema area by Angami pressure. The land East of Haflong being fully settled, they passed on to the West but they retain the dress of the Northern Nzemi
