Their language is Nagamis, which is made up of Naga and Assamese languages.
There are 16 tribes in this northeastern state of India.The Kyoyak tribals are considered extremely dreadful. They often used to fight the neighboring villages to capture the power and land of their clan. How to divide this clan in two parts, the authorities decided that the border line would go through the middle of the village, but it would not have any impact on the Kyoyak. A message has been written in one side of the border is Burmese and on the other side is Hindi.
Before 1940, they used to cut the heads of other people to occupy their land. The chief practice is run in these tribals. This head is the head of four to five villages. This head puts more than one wife. This head has 60 wives.
Their huts are mainly made of bamboo. They are quite large and they contain many parts.
