Abstract: The Poumai Naga folksongs and folktales state that Poumai Naga is one of the major and oldest Naga tribes. Poumai have its own distinct cultural heritage. The ancestral community life of the Poumai Naga can be seen through their folk songs, folktales, customs, dances, feasts, games, festivals, dresses, ornament, rituals, practices, handicraft etc. In the olden days the life and activities of Poumai are not beyond their village. They lived only within their own village territory. In Poumai Naga society there was no class, caste system and any social distinction between them and therefore, every person enjoys equal rights. The Poumais are by nature cheerful, humorous, hospitable, honest and industrious. The people practice several customary laws and traditions in their societal formation, for instance, they practiced dormitory system, where separate dormitories are allotted for the bachelors and the bachelorettes. There are some important practices and laws that provide a good atmosphere and safety life for the society such as traditional customary laws and customs. Traditions, laws, customs, beliefs and social structures were very central to the socio-cultural life of the Poumai Naga. Although there are no written customary laws, people are aware and respectful of their rights, duties, and customs of the village. With the coming of Christianity along with modern education marked the new transformation of Poumai Naga community life. Christianity plays an important role in transforming the old social values and ways of life.
