(Founders Ministries) -- “When I went to war, I marked my enemies like a sniper. And when I got to them, I chopped their heads off with a knife.”
These are the translated words of Wangloi Wangshu, one of the few surviving members of the Naga headhunting tribe in northern India, documented in 2015 by National Geographic.
“If I happened upon the enemy, it didn’t matter if the person was a man, woman, or child. I chopped the head off.”
