text: From an ethnological point of view the village had little to offer. The houses are of average size and have planks for walls. (37) The roofs too are covered with wide planks with a layer of grass over them. The gables protrude and are supported by a post but they do not overlap as occurs in Chang villages. The interior consists only of one room.
