I’ve spent most of the last three years living in the mountainous region of Northern Thailand. Nestled in the hills all around the valleys live “hill tribes” with names like the Akha, Hmong and Lahu. Each has their own traditional dress, unique language and local foods. To many of us living in the valley cities — especially foreigners like myself from far-flung places — these hill tribes seem left behind by the slow march of civilizational progress. They are often described as “our living ancestors.” Euphemistically referred to as disadvantaged, many live in bamboo huts and lack access to education, electricity and many trappings of modern life the rest of us rely on every day.
