Description:Miu (pronounced in Hrusso Aka as /muʎo/ ) is the headman of Lepang Huda, a village located in Lower Bhalukpong on the border between Assam and Arunachal. He is one of the earliest settlers of this area in modern times, traditionally considered Hrusso Aka territory by the tribe, but now home to a mixed population. In these videos, Miu recalls the time when he first came down from the hills, from the village of his birth.
