THE Angami and Zeliangrong people share traditional boundary that goes beyond the state of Nagaland – starting from Manipur in the South stretching till Assam in the North–West.
This was confirmed in a joint meeting of the Angami Public Organisation (APO) and the Zeliangrong Baudi (Assam, Manipur & Nagaland), including the constituent units of the two apex tribe organizations, held at Hotel Millennium, Konia on Wednesday.In connection with the shared boundary amongst the two tribes, subsequent to thorough deliberations, the meeting agreed on two more points. They agreed that between the lands of Viswema (Nagaland) and Yangkhullen (Ze-Nnui) village (Manipur) in the South till the land of Lamhai and Chumukedima in the North–West, there is no land ancestrally owned by any other tribe or village.
Also, in this stretch of shared boundary in areas where there is lack of clear resolution or disputes, the Angami Public Organisation and Zeliangrong Baudi (AMN) endorsed and appealed to its concerned units and villages to come together and resolve it amicably.
