Düva Dususow speaks to Dorjee Jebisow about 'Rani' Lumum and the genealogy of Some of Buragaon and Jamiri families. Rani Lumum (Queen Lumum) is a revered figure of recent memory. Ethically a Miji, she was the wife of Drulyiw Dususow, a direct descendant of Tage Raja's brother Ŝügzü (Shigi). The Hrusso Akas have recently (2016) named a waterfall near Tippi after her. Düva Dususow is a respected elder of the Dususow clan, and is regarded as the most knowledgable authority on oral history, genealogy, and mythology. He is the pastor of the Christian Fellowship Church of Buragaon, and enthusiastic about the preservation of the Hrusso Aka language, and has composed many hymns in his native tongue. He is an active member of the newly-formed Hrusso Aka Orthography and Literature Group.
