Aina lo oghungu no iuu leshele. Ikemu pai hauve nani  Hiye iuu ashekheu kikimiye tsa ke. Niye okimiye ani.

Sumi poem, translated by Toli

Poem translated into sumi (Sema), for the Nagaland women. Only 110,000 people speak the sema. This sema love poem for this superb girl, an aborigine whose ancestors cut heads

The Nagas are divided into about thirty tribes in Burma and Yunann. Their culture and social structure unchanged for a long time have been well studied by anthropologists. I am very proud to have in addition to ao language, this second translation in the naga language of Zunheboto. It is so difficult to go so far to meet these small groups, who still live from traditions.
