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.
