are broken Assamese (for intertribal communication), Hindi and English. Tribal languages are among others, Angami, Ao, Chang, Konyak, Lotha, Sangtam, Sema, and Chakhesang. The traditional Naga religion is animistic, but because of extensive missionary work in the 19th century, the main religion in Nagaland is Christianity (88%).
