Abstract: The present study aims to understand the tribal community who came and settled in the area which was regarded as the Reserve Forest in Dimapur, Nagaland and the area has been turned into settlements by the people who came to settle from different districts of Nagaland. The link between the tribal community and the forest has been a long history. The people were depended on the forest for the sustenance of their livelihood and even today the practice is still followed by the people. The land had been densely populated by the people in the area over the years. Due to the increase in the number of villages in the Reserve area, conflicts arose between the villages over the land issues. The villages who were first ones to come to the Reserve area wanted to keep the land for themselves and they did not want to share the land area with the other people who started coming into the area. People started changing their attitude towards the conservation of the forest and wildlife, and supported the Forest Department in conservation. This means there is a potential for development.
