text: Indrame & Ne-ume.
text: Here are no Garengsa houses. While the Hajailo people were here they intermarried with the Indrame, then they did not marry within the clan. There are 44 houses in Boronienglo; there are 3 morungs and 3 girls dormitories. The village is divided between two clans. One side is Indrame and one Ne-ume; but the members of the morung are mixed.
