text: The Thendu group greatly surpassed the Thenkoh group in size and extension. Within the Naga Hills district the villages of Chingphoi, Shiong, Longkhai, Lungnyu, Hungphoi, Wangla, Oting, Lunglam, and Lapha belonged to this group, but their main strength lay in the unadministered tribal country to the northeast. The Wanchu villages now included in the Tirap district are closely allied to the Thendu group.
