Traditional culture and customs persists in rural areas of Myanmar. This richly illustrated volume presents many aspects of the occupations and local mores of five of the country's 135 ethnic minorities. Chapters are devoted to: the Chin people in the mountains of the North-West; the tea-processing Ta-ang (Palaung) people of the Northern Shan plateau; the Naga, originally tribal warrior people of the fast-developing India/China/Myanmar borderlands; Kayins in foothills of Zwegapin in the South-East; and the Rakhine people of the coastal state bordering Bangladesh.
