There are about 64 races of this ethnic tribe. They usually make their villages at above 3000 or 4000 feet above sea level. They grow crop and hunt for their living. The new year is at January 14 and 15. The main idea of celebrating new year is to enjoy the feast of the gone year and to welcome a better year of harvest.
