CONTINUITY AND CHANGE OF TRIBAL CUISINE OF ANGAMI TRIBES: A SOCIOLOGICAL ANALYSIS IN NAGALAND
Despite making up a sizable portion of the country, the Northeast is isolated from the mainland because of various reasons such as the distances involved and geographical isolation. Traveling to these states allows for genuine exposure, which further piques travellers' interest. What's remarkable is that people are now more willing than ever to experience the local cuisine. This article compares the Angami tribe's previous and current generations in order to examine the continuity and change, tribal cuisine among Angamis. The current study makes the case that traditional culinary expertise that is tightly tied to their Indigenous Knowledge System may soon be lost as the younger generation accepts modern food in their daily lives. The primary data source belongs to in-depth interviews with tribal members of the Angami group. Additionally, secondary data from numerous published studies was used. This article is based on research that has been continuing since November 2022.
