Another well-liked dance is Sawlakin. This was at first a Lakher dance, but at the present it has been adopted by all the
Mizas. Sabwlakia means will of the slain. The dance was led by the warrior who had hunted a big game or killed a man.
He would wear his best clothes and a plume of red feather. He would wield a gun or
dao and a shield. He would be followed by other dancers in a row,
who would also carry artillery, or cymbals or gongs. Some boys would
stand in a collection thrashing drums or blowing bugles. The dancers would move forward and slowly go round the head.
While dancing weapons and shields would be wielded keeping time with drum or gong beats. All the time dancers would be plied with
Zu by the women. This dance is a Well-liked dance now. The modifications now are that there is no top in the loop and no Zu.
