travel information, travel services, travel planner, online travel, travel reservation, travel web site Northern Thailand's moutain peoples - the so called "Hilltribes". The rugged terrain of the forested hills was left practically unpopulated for centuries, and this factor accounted for the isolation and the conservative traditions of the little townships established in the valley. Immigration hilltribes in the last century have filled hils void, and today the mountains of northern Thailand are inhabited by half a million people belonging to several different tribes.
The "Hill tribe" are the ethnic miorities living in the mountainous regions of Thailand's far north and west. The Thais refer to them as "Cho Khao" ("mountain people"). Each hill tribe has its own language, customs, mode of dress and spiritual beliefs

Most are of semi-nomadic origin, having migrated to Thailand from Tibet, Myanmar, China, and Lao during the past 200 years or so, although some groups may have been in Thailand much longer. Thay are "fourth world" people in that they belong neither to the main aligned powers nor to the developing nations. Rather, they have crossed and continue to cross national bodders without regard for recent nationhood.

The sex major tribes are the Karen (Kariang, Yang), the Hmong (Meo, the Yao (Mien), the Akha (Ekaw), the Lisu (Lisaw), and the Lahu (Mussur).
The tribes most likely to be encountered in the region can be divided into three main linguistic groups: the Tibeto-Burman (Lisu, Lahu, Akha), the Karenic (karen, Kayah), and the Austro-Thai (Hmong, Mien). With in each group there may also be several subgroups, eg, Blue Hmong, White Hmong: these names usually refer to predominant elements of clothing.

The Shan (Thai Yai, meaning large Thai) are not included in the descriptions below as they are not a hill-tribe group. They have permanent habitations and speak a language similar to Thai. Thai scholars consider them to have been the original inhabitants of the area. Nevertheless, Shan village are often common stop on hill-tribe treks.

travel information, travel services, travel planner, online travel, travel reservation, travel web site Language and culture constitute the borders of their world. Some group are caught between the 6th and 21 st centuries, while others are gradually being assimilated into modern life. Many tribes people are also moving into lowland areas as mountain lands become deforested by both traditional swidden (slash-and-burn) cultivation and illegal logging.
The main profession of all thes tribes is farmming, and all of them tend to migrate whenever they fell that the soil at their present location is be coming depleted. Each tribe is distinct, with its own culture, traditions, religion, language, art, and has a special style of dress.
The following comments on dress refer mostly to the female members of each group, as hill-tribe men tend to dress like rural Thais. Population figures are taken from 1995 estimates. The total hill-tribe population to be around 550,000.

Recently there have been many projects attempting to integrate hilltribe communities into the mainstream of society and, particularly, to substitute opium farming with alternative crops. Such efforts have met with much success, and today Thailand is no longer a major producer, although it is still a conduit for opium caravans from Burma and Laos.

A large part of the success is due to the efforts of King Bhumipol, who has dedicated much personal attention and much of his own funds to help the people of the mountains. Today, tribes people make more frequent visits to town markets and are more cofident in approaching the Thai authorities and the people of the valleys.

Many children now receive a basic education (mostly from teachers provided by the Border Patrol Police) and nearly all speak a minimal amount of the Thai language. It will be a long while, however, before the mountains of Northern Thailand are safe and healthy places to live; and the price to be paid for the development may well include the loss fo cultural indentity and many ancient traditions.
