text: Primi. This village is a Sangtam village, speaking the same language as Yetsimi which is likewise that of Mangaki, Chanr and Alisopo near Mokokchung. Phozami and Photsami are apparently of the same tribe, but Melomi and Lapvomi, like Sohemi are isolated Rengmas, the villages between them and Themokidima having been driven out by Semas. Some Sema villages are marked on the older maps Mezhamibagwe - i.e. "Formerly Rengma village".
