Nagaland, India: American Baptist missionaries arrived in the Naga hills around 1850. Today among the different Naga tribes, Baptist Christians are a majority. However, Naga persons have a strong identification with their tribes and languages. Thus, each tribe has its own Baptist church. Today's images have the churches of Sumi, Chakhesang and Yimchungru tribes.

नागालैंड, भारतः नागा पहाड़ियों में अमरीकी बेपटिस्ट मिशनरी 1850 के आसपास आये. आज विभिन्न प्रजातियों के नागा लोगों में बेपटिस्ट ईसाईयों का बाहुल्य हैं. लेकिन नागा प्रजातियों में अपने कबीले की तथा अपनी भाषा की पहचान से लगाव बहुत प्रबल हैं, इसलिए हर प्रजाति के अपने गिरजाघर हैं. आज की तस्वीरों में सूमी, चाकेसाँग तथा यिमछुँगरु नागा प्रजातियों के गिरजाघर.

Nagaland, India: I missionari battisti americani erano arrivati nelle colline Naga intorno al 1850. Oggi tra le diverse tribù dei Naga, i cristiani battisti sono la maggioranza. Ciò nonostante, le persone Naga si identificano fortemente con le proprie tribù e le loro lingue. Per cui ogni tribù ha sua chiesa battista. Le immagini di oggi hanno le chiese delle tribù Sumi, Chakhesang e Yimchungru.
