text: (9) Dzem-ang, the morung Ang of Balang, gets tribute from Kongan. At morungs ceremonies - when the morung is rebuilt and every year at Bau-mo-bu, the morung genna in the month Shou-wen-li, he receives hind-legs of the mithan and the pigs killed. The other hind-legs are given to Chinkak. Dzem-ang does not make any ceremonies. The morung people work on his fields. The other morung Angs don't get any shares, they are only nominally Angs.
