text: Inf. Mauwang, Longkhai Ang.
text: A brother of Mauwang's grandfather (PHUMEN), ATANG, married Ngamlong, a girl of the Ang clan of Oting, which is Wang-sha-ba. Consequently his son, LEWANG, was Wang-sha-ba too, and married Phampho (Ben clan, Hang). He died some days ago. His corpse platform is in the jungle (not in the village like that of the great Ang) and his skull will be put into a pot, not into a stone cists, like that of the Angs. Mauwang says: Wangshaba people are like Ben.
