text: The gaonbura of Lunglam came with a chicken as salaam and I could ask him a few things about his village. Lunglam was founded only a generation ago. The founder was the gaonbura's father's brother and he came from Joboka. Together with him came an Ang from the great Ang clan of Joboka but first the house of the founder was built, then the Ang's house and only then the morung. The gaonbura does not know which gennas were held then. Lunglam pays tribute to Mon.
