Name Good morning Umphang Thailand

In the September, I will go to Thailand's border between Thailand and burma, to visit the Karen hill tribe village, who want to go with me?

Karen is one of the hill tribes living in Thailand and is found in the hilly terrains of Northern Thailand. This tribe also inhabits certain parts of Myanmar.
The Karen lives in bamboo houses raised on stilts and beneath which... they raise domestic animals like pigs, buffaloes and chickens. They practice siding agriculture and irrigate paddy fields. All the family members of Karen live together under a single roof. The parents with their unmarried as well as the married children may also live together. The village priest is given the highest authority to run the village along with the elders.

The Karen women are noted for their skills in weaving. They wear clothes that are hand-woven on back strapping looms. Each group has its own style of dressing. Unmarried girls wear loose white eve necked blouses while married women wear blouses and skirt in bold colors, usually blue and red. The Karen men produce musical instruments and tobacco pipes and sell them in the lowland towns.

Most of Karen people are animists who believe in supernatural elements. They perform rituals to gods of land and water. They also believe that spirits live in rocks, tree, and mountains. The Karen tries to live in harmony with nature, and they believe that the guardian spirits help them in leading harmonious lives
