Dwelling in the more mountainous parts of the Southeast Asian massif, in the present-day states of Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Thailand, Burma (Myanmar) and southwest China, there are more than a thousand “peoples.” They often do not have very much in common. Some groups number in the hundreds, others in the millions. They belong to different ethnicities, speak different languages, practice different religions, have different customs, and wear different attire. Some were always selfgoverning, others feudal fiefs. Most live from agriculture, often quite poorly, and not all have been dragged fully into the modern economy. Yet, despite any differences and lack of contact, they do share certain bonds.
