Clearing for the second time, it then managed to survive. Therefore lands have been opened it is sufficient breadth to serve rice paddies and fields as well as to the grounds of residence, then it's then their activities were, suspended for a while. Division of the lands began to set, each determined inherit enough land area for farming and housing.
    Where for the first time made them do the division of the land, now has become a village named P uakan. The village name is a reminder, that there occurs the division of the land mark.
