Is wearing leg paint made from rice flour, feather from a rooster’s tail on the head, and earrings made out of bamboo & wool.

“The Zeliang is the official name of the Zemi and Liangmei people in Nagaland. Some scholars have regarded these people as the last group of migrants from south-east Asia. The Zeilang Naga live primarily in the south-western part of Kohima district.” Source
