More information:

    "Those in China have various clan surnames but no group autonym and are included in the Tibetan nationality, while those in India are classified as the Meyor and Zakhring tribes according to their clan names; more recently they have started to use the group name Zaiwa. The Chinese literature refers to them as Zha, from the local Tibetan term for this group, (tsa35), probably derived from the local place name Zayul" (Bradley 2007: 395).Also this language is different from Zaiwa (atb) in Yunnan, China.
