Chapter 2. Zhang Zhung book.
Tsewang’s five sons, Rinchhen Pau, 23 , Sonam Rinchen, 12 , Rinchen Angdu, 8 , Jigme Rinchen, 6 , Rinchen Dorje, 5, sit at their polyandrous marriage ceremony. Their wife to be is Urgen Bhuti, age 15. “We call ourselves Nyinba,”Tsewang explained. “which means, “People of the Sunny Valley”. Like the nomads of my homeland, they practice polyandry-one woman marries and is shared by all the brothers in the house. My father believed strongly in polyandry-he said it kept brothers together and made for a strong and stable household. The population is less and concentrates the wealth with borthers working together.
