text: (2) The Ang receives one hind-leg of every domestic animal killed (except chickens!) and the head and one hind-leg of all game killed. He does not get a pig of every litter. The villagers do all the work on the Ang's fields. The Ang's family has not come from Mon or Chui, it is the old Tanhai Ang family.
