"Hornbill Festival
The Hornbill Festival itself is put on for tourists as an attempt to preserve the area's Kisama Heritage Village. Re-enactment of folk stories, folk dancing a riot of colour and singing,

Naga’s in their tribal costumes fantastic opportunity to see them."

16 tribes
"In Kisama Village all 16 tribes being present in one place, At least when Hornbill festival takes place. Or less every day fashion is a must to se. I do not like artificial villages, but I have to admit, this one is an exception. "
