Namdapha Management Plan: Proposal for Buffer Zone



This notification dated on 20 August 2009 by Field Director of NNP, stated a series of meetings that took place. Several villages in Miao and Nampong areas unanimously agreed for the NNP boundary. We did not agree. How can we agree? See the facts:

  • We lived in the park prior to its declaration. No other tribes around lived that way.
  • Our shortage of land is too acute. The authorities took the land upto to 80th Mile, which physical 7 miles along the road from Shidi. The terrain is fully hills; no way we’ll have cultivation. Those in Miao and Nampong have at least plain lands and have sufficient.
