The story is about why the people are called Rangsi. There are two reasons, one was that other people isolated them, and the other people were also afraid of them. The meaning of yang ‘human’, ban ‘place’ and vang means ‘a superior or powerful person’. The story told about how the people came from Mongolia – a story shared by many Naga groups. Earlier they were very polite people, but today they are a bit rough. He then talked about the different festivals, the Wihu festival and the harvest festival and the other Tang laq kuq – the latter used to happen in October but is now held in November. There were three types of dances, associated with the drum, and five types associated with the gong. The word for ‘drum’ is pvǹjó. There are three types of dance pvǹnom̌ (drum dance) rānom̌ (cymbal dance) yam̀ nom̌ (gong dance) and there is kumsa – jaw harp – and a type of dance which is done with the jaw harp. Now they are trying to collect their own language, and they are collecting information about their culture also, and they are also setting up language and literature committee and they are interested to have contact with those interested in their work
