text: The Chingtang people give shares of animals killed at various gennas (but not at Oulingbu) to the great houses of the Thepong clans. The people of Ang clan give their shares to the Thepong morung, others to the respective "Great Houses" of Yanahu, Khoknok, Wemnok and Shayonghu and Metahu, under the protection of which they stand. Tanhai and Shiong don't give similar shares to the Great Houses of Aukheang, but only the shares to the morung at Oulingbu. (184) Thepong men don't take wives from Chingtang, but Thepong girls marry Chingtang men.
