text: (137) The Longkhai people lived first in a village also called "Longkhai" between Shonio and Ni-nu. The present village was first founded by the Wang-shu clan. With them came also an Ang of the Great Ang clan and the Wang-nau clan, Ya-ya-wang-shu and Atak-wang-shu. First the Wang-ba was built. When the Ang clan died out they called an Ang from Mon and the present Ang is his descendant. This happened a long time ago. (138) There are no morung Angs.
