The Moken Sea Gypsies are a small group of sea nomads from the islands off Myanmar, Thailand and North Malaysia. This softback is the true story of a Myanmar Christian woman missionary who is also an anthropologist, pioneer educator and linguist/translator. She has lived for 33 years with the Moken people, promoted more recognition of the Moken language, founded two beginning schools and translated large parts of the bible. These sketches and tales give a picture of the ways and attitudes of the Moken and of their approach to new teaching. With line drawings, sketch maps, photographs, timeline, glossary and language notes.
