Bendangjungshi (* 1973) brings into dialogue the three leading Northeast Indian tribal theologians, Renthy Keitzar (1936 - 2003), K. Thanzauva (* 1946) and Wati Longchar (* 1958) with the Western theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906 - 1945) who suffered martyrdom under the Nazi dictatorship in Germany. Negotiating between Bonhoeffer's political approach and Naga cultural identity, Bendangjungshi develops a liberating ecclesiology for Naga Christians, who have been suffering under Indian military occupation since the withdrawal of the British colonizers from Nagaland.
