Longterok: An AO-Naga’s Testament of The Self
AbstractThe sanctity of stones/rocks in the Bible has been preserved in the highest order with it being applied in the most exalted manner to the Messiah. In this paper an attempt is made to decode the petra genetrix myth of the Ao-Nagas from the six stones—Longterok—at Chungliyimti. This myth not only is a recount of the origin of our forefathers but establishes the order of clans and phratries within the tribe. Reflections in the paper are done in accordance with the essence of the Christian symbolism and traditional beliefs of stones along with Jungian convictions.
