National Geographic reports on the Naga Tribe that is now 90% Christian
There are a lot of unreached people group in this world who need Jesus. They are those people who have no access to the Internet and still live in their dangerous traditions and cultures. And one of them is the tribe of Naga headhunters in Northern India.
The headhunters used to live a life where killing was the norm. It was one of their traditions to kill their enemies and gather their heads. The person who would take a head gained power in their community. After they chopped a head off a body, they would put a tattoo on their face as a form of graduation. Because during those days, killing each other was part of their culture.

But this brutal tradition changed after an American missionary visited their tribe. At first, the people in the village were very hesitant to accept the Gospel, but once they observed the way people from outside of their village lived, they slowly started to welcome Jesus into their hearts.
God moved in their village because drastic changes happened. Ninety percent of the people in the tribe accepted Jesus. And if you will ask them the question, “ Are you a son of God”? They would boldly answer “Yes.” And since they encountered the love of God, they decided to keep the good things in their traditions and let the bad things go.
Because of the lives of the Christian missionaries who took the risk to share the love of God to them, they started to live in peace and harmony. They have realized that peace is much better than killing each other. Their minds changed when they heard the Word of God and were able to read the truth written in the Bible.
In the video below, some of the last surviving Naga headhunters describe how they once killed members of other tribes, a practice that ended when they converted to Christianity. Today these men are elderly, and their region in northern India, Nagaland, hasa higher percentage of Baptists than the state of Mississippi!
This beautiful testimony proves that God loves this world, and unreached people need to encounter Him. So let’s pray for more missionaries who are bold enough to share the Gospel. Watch and be inspired:
