Introduction / History
Long Phuri Naga are also called Amimi Naga. Their language has traditionally been classified as a Makuri Naga dialect. However, it is clear that Long Phuri is a distinct language from Makuri. Historically, the Naga are the peoples who live in the Brahmaputra and Chindwin valleys. Until recent times, all of the groups in this large geographical region called themselves Naga and often claimed that they were one group. Although they occupy a continuous stretch of hill country between the Brahmaputra and Chindwin valleys, these groups are not homogeneous ethnically, culturally, or linguistically.

The Naga are one of many Tibeto-Burman groups. They are said to have migrated from Tibet and entered Myanmar through what is now Kachin State. They moved along the Chindwin valleys and scattered throughout Manipur, Assam and even into eastern Bangladesh. From these locations, some Naga later returned to Myanmar. Many Naga also live in Nagaland in Northeast India. As agriculturalists, they produce their own food and clothing, and sell and trade fruit (oranges) and vegetables. Sometimes, when they can't get to the market, they trade oranges for rice from Chinese merchants.
