text: SECTION 7. (2)- THE KUKIS.
text: Steward gives us accounts of two clans of Kukis now settled in Kachar, the old and the new; but they are obviously the same race, and the points of divergence arising from their having settled at different periods in that district are not so great as to necessitate here a separate notice. The Kukis are now found as neighbours of the Nagas in Asam and in contiguity with the Mugs of Arracan. The hill country occupied by them extends from the valley of the Koladyne, where they touch on the Khumis, to Northern Kachar and Manipur, a distance of about 300 miles.
