That's good to hear about Lamkang. Do you know where they might be living in Myanmar? They were reluctant to add even long-established to the list. Chin currently has the longest list of ethnic groups in the official 135 group list, and some leaders have been feeling pressure to shorten the list. 

Just to clarify for others, this list is only for Chin groups in Myanmar.

Interesting, I see Meit(h)ei discussed but not Lamkang or any of the KC languages spoken in Chandel district listed.  There is a Lamkang settlement in Myanmar although perhaps it is small and fairly recent.

For all who get confused by long lists of Chin group names, here is a link to the final report by the Chin national action committee on the census, tasked with reviewing the current official list of Chin ethnic groups.
