text: The Naga Hills, as the part of Nagaland then under British administration used to be called, were for long one of the least accessible regions of India, and beyond the Naga Hills district lay a tribal area over which the Government of India did not exercise any effective control. Survey parties had penetrated some parts of that unadministered tribal area, but their work had remained fragmentary and large-scale maps of the Survey of India still showed several white patches.
