text: (88) Sangnyu (Hang)
text: At present Hang's real "sons" number eight. They are Longphong, Sangsa, Nlassia, Zakho, Nganting, Longsang, Puka and Weiling. There are also another nine villages who more or less acknowledge Hang's overlordship. They are: Niao, Sonyong, Chanmu, Zunyu (Banfera), Chopnyu, Rusa, Yansa (Joboka), Yannyu and Wangkham (Khamlung).
text: Hang say that they assisted the Assamese in their war against the Han (Shan?) invasion and went as far as Duba beyond the Disang River to do so.
