text: A Sheangha Ang daughter, whose mother was from Tang-niu, went to Tang-nie in order to marry the Ang's son. But the latter refused to marry her and sent her back the same day. She cursed the village and said that the Sheangha men will take many heads from Tang-niu. Since then the two villages are at war and Sheangha has taken many Tang-niu heads. Later on she married (37) an Ang of Longwa.
