text: (82) There are two Noklang clans, the Great one and the Small one.
text: The Great Noklang clan came from the Ao country (Chantongia and Merangkong), the Small Noklang came from Tangsa, therefore it is called Tangsa Noklang. Members of both clans are in the two morungs: Tangha-ban & Menglem-ban. In the Menglem morung is one half 'for' the Noklang clan, this side is called Noklang-yep. (83) The "small" Noklang were not real Noklangs when they were in Tangsa, but when they came to Tamlu they became the "sons" of the other Noklang clan and took the name. The two Noklangs don't intermarry.
