Summary:The book is a theological work on the Naga traditional worldview, through the re-examining and re-reading of the Naga tribal myths, folklores, folktales, sayings, its patriarchal culture, etc., from a Womanist theological perspective. It argues against the popular claim that the traditional worldview is holistic and communitarian without any discriminatory elements in concept and practice. In particular, it takes under its critical study the concept of cosmic oneness - a central concept in the Naga traditional worldview - and re-views the traditional sources to either prove or disprove such claim. -- From publisher's description.
