Nagamese is a creole language spoken in Nagaland, India, based on the Assamese language (an Indo-Aryan language related to Bengali).

There aren't many resources on it, but here are some I've found.
Survival Phrases (and Vocabulary) of Nagamese: The Lingua Franca of Nagaland from the Indica Linguistica blog
Nagamese Audio Recordings from the same blog
Nagamese Khobor, online news site in Nagamese
