The tribal people are famous
for their Ponung that is dancing with the accompaniment of songs. A group
of girls dance in a circle holding each other by stretching their
hands over each others shoulders while the leader-usually a man called
the Miri-dances and sings in the centre-holding aloft and shaking a sword
like musical instrument called 'Yoksha'. First he sings a line and
then it is repeated in chorus by the maidens rhythmically in circle at
a low pace. On all important occasions ponung is arranged.
