Burmese Children

Burmese Children
Myanmar (Burma), Palaung village, March 2012

The Palaung tribe is one of Burma's most ancient indigenous people. They have fled in the past 20 years from Shan State and Kachin State to escape persecution and oppression at the hands of Burma's military rulers. Many of the Palaung are now in Thailand as refugees living in refugee camps. The people we met in the Burmese Palaung village were the most friendly people we met during our trip through Burma.
