text: This is an admirable illustration of one of the Naga tribes, who are found in the hills south of the Nowgong District, between the Doyang and Kopili Rivers, in the Asam Province.
text: There is nothing that I know of except the name to connect these clans with the tribes east of the Doyang. Their features are harsher, more decidedly Mongolian; and their language, which is quite different, associates them with the Manipuri and Kuki tribes and their cognates.
