text: To Lapvomi. Tsikami village which used to lie between Metikumi and Lapvomi has disappeared. It broke up after the influenza, the few houses that remained going to Jessami and Metikumi.
text: On the east side of the Lapvomi range the Nukopo stream may do for the boundary of the Kukis at Haijang and the Kishilu, a stream on the opposite side of the valley coming down from Mullin (10079) also a tributary of the Phodung or Arachu river, would give a continuous boundary from the Somra Tract to the Manipur border at Jessami, north of which no Kukis should be allowed to cultivate, fish or hunt.
