He lists the Tsam Yang Phaw, Sam Jaq Toq, Lam Re, Tsam Ran Roq, the Seiqrin Kok, then Buffalo sacrifice, then Deq Toq. At the time of Seiqrin Koq, they will sing the Wihu Shi. There is one more Wu Tai Kok/ At 1’12” he gives the order of festivals as Tsam (Yang) Phaw, Mol, Wu Tai Kok, Tsam Yaq Toq, Lam Re, Tsam Ran and Tsam Ran Roq, the Seiqrin Kok. In total there were 7. The Wu Tai Kok was only celebrated by the Mungre and ran for 7 days, and neighbouring villages were warned that they could not enter during those 7 days; if they wanted to come and stay they must come in advance and stay for all the 7 days. If unknowingly they come in the middle they must stay to the end. If they try to leave early, they will kill them. During this festival they tell the whole history of their people – the do not sing it. They tell of the story of old battles and explain about moving villages and the meaning of the skulls. They may say that from Haqlum village so many men were killed and they can witness these skulls. And while telling men keep the dao on the left side and spear on the left side, showing their traditional dignity. Like this people can witness. Now without informing if some people came, they would be questioned and a traditional case might be filed.
