A brief historical account: Christianity among the Ao Nagas of North-East India
Abstract: Coming of Christianity to the Ao Nagas was in a way facilitated by the prevailing political, economic and socio-cultural situation of that time, bringing the hill people in the path of the proliferative mission of The American Baptist Mission. The political and economic expansion policy of the British government paved the way up to the door step of the frontier tribes offering the mission irresistible opportunity to establish mission field. On the other hand, the persistent effort of the missionaries fueled by their strong conviction in their faith and support from some Christian British officials caused them to gain ground leading to proselytization of the tribes.
