Tribes of Nagaland and the Catholic Church is a valuable treatise on the history and contribution of the Catholic Church in Nagaland and the role it played in the development of the State. It traces the roots, growth and the influence Catholic Church had on the people and the state in general. Recalling the immense sacrifice the earlier Catholic missionaries and lay leaders made, the book also highlights the struggles of social isolation, indifference, threats and expulsion that they faced on account of their Catholicism.
