text: Yet, unlike some of the smaller Konyak villages, Wakching has retained the basic framework of its social structure, and there is exogamy. Moreover, Wakching still receives tribute payments from some of the villages which used to be dependent on its protection During the disturbances of the secessionist movement, these payments were discontinued by some of the villages, but since the re-establishment of order the tribute payments have been resumed.
