text: We went into the field hut of a young man called Man-ang who is the Ang of the The-phong morung. The position is inherited. When Man-ang dies his son follows him provided that he has one which is not yet the case. In the field hut we were talking about dress and about the tattoos of the headhunters which Yongang wears with pride. (notebook 2 p. 96 following).
