Photographer's Note

Photo of a 17 year-old girl from the Yellow Lahu hilltribe (Lahu Shi Balah). Taken in Doi Mae Salong, Chiang Rai Province, Northern Thailand.

The Yellow Lahu are smallest Lahu minority found in Thailand. They originate from Southern China and Tibet. The other name for Lahu is 'Musur'. Other subgroups are the Red Lahu and the Black Lahu.

Little English is spoken. The younger Lahu can speak Thai while the older folks speak only Lahu Na, a soft tonal language from the Yi/Lolo branch of the Tibetan-Burmese linguistic group.
