No you can't — unless you come from Sakrej. *maH Hoch* is not a *Hoch* 
that is possessed by *maH.* As we see with "area" nouns, they don't get 
"possessed" by the pronouns modifying them: *jIH tlhop*/area in front of 
me/ (not *tlhopwIj*), and so on. I don't possess the area in front of 
me; the area in front is being identified as the one associated with me. 
This is a non-possessive, genitive relationship.
