The other ceremonies such as Khau-A, Catang-Cale and Nyin-Cam-Meijung are celebrated in the Buddhist way by offering flowers, vegetables and rice at the village monasteries- in the last part of July for Khau-A, in the middle September for Catang-Cale and before the start of winter for Nyin-Cam-Meijung.


The Mijis believe in many gods. Jang-Langnui is the most powerful of all of them. A festival is observed in honour of the spirit in the month of October. Each village has a deori who officiates in the ritual. A new shed is put up for Jang-Langnui every year in a selected spot. On the first day a cow is sacrificed in the morning and a pig at night. Any villager can perform the sacrifice of a cow but the pig is killed by the deori himself. The villagers celebrate the occasion by feasting, dancing, singing etc for sever days.
