Thai Lady With Umbrella
- The modern Nation of Thailand is a multicultural society. The predominant Thai culture, identity and civilization emerged as a by product of the interaction of the indigenous population with Tai and other immigrant peoples (including Chinese and Indian). When people call themselves ‘’ Thai ’’ they mean they are in the political sense, subjects of the Thailand nation. If explored further the word has a cultural and, for many, a linguistic sense. However not all Thailand ladies speak Thai and of those who do so it is a second language for them. This Thai identity in its present form is relatively recent. Dating Thai.
- Accordingly foreign men should understand that the words describing the female sector of the population of Thailand reflect in general terms a complicated subject and the differences need to be understood so as not to show ignorance but also to be well received for understanding the differences.
- There are more than 16 different Asian ethnic groups of Thai ladies in North Thailand. Within these there are common differences and common similarities in some cases. For example with land usage (highlanders, swidden farmers and wet rice producers), religions or mythology groups and ethnic origins. Traditionally they are classified by their linguistic origins. The dominant ethnic group today are the Tai speakers, the Tai Yuan (Khon Muang), the Tai Yai (Shan), Tai Lue, Tai Khun and Tai Yong. The Tai tribes originally came from South West China.
- The original Asian ladies inhabitants since the metal Ages were the Austroasians (the Austro-Asiatic speakers) and this includes, the Mon, the Lawa, the H 'tin, Kammu and Khon Pa tribes (including the Mlabri).
- The Karen Thai Asian lady speakers came from Burma (Myanmar). The Tibeto-Burman speakers originated in Tibet and in Thailand they include, the Lisu, the Akha and the Lahu. The Haw also came from Yunnan (but with Turkic ancestors) and are Sinitic speakers. The HmongYao tribes also came from China and are Meo - Yao speakers.
- The inhabitants of Central Thailand in Asia after the prehistoric period were the Austro-Asiatic speakers, the Mon and the Khmer. Then came the Tai tribes and their principal group was the Siamese Tai. There are pockets of Mon speakers today but most tribes merged to produce a diverse looking nation.
- Another significant migration group were the Chinese, many of whom mixed into the local communities. As with the other regions there are also minor ethic groups. The largest of these minority ethnic groups are the Karen who inhabit the mountain range to the west along the Myanmar boarder.
- The Tai tribes came from China in the 13th century and the Khmer are believed to have come to Thailand (and Cambodia) in the 6th century , both groups displacing animist Austro Asiatic speakers of numerous tribes.
- The Khmer people dominated the area and their language, beliefs and political systems were the basis of human daily life until displaced by the Tai. Today people call themselves Thai but this does not necessarily mean they are Tai.
The Asian Chinese Ladies In Thailand
- The Tai tribes, the Yunnanese Haw and all the ‘’ Hill tribes ‘’ detailed in the North Thailand People section (except for the Austroasians) came from China. Here the term Chinese refers to the Han Chinese communities who migrated to Thailand. Today 12 % of Thai ladies are Chinese or have some Chinese ancestors. The community is estimated to have been 230,000 in 1825 and 792,000 by 1910. By 1932,12.2% of the population of Siam was Chinese.
- Most Chinese came from the rural south of China, and on arrival centered around Bangkok in the marked orientated sector of the Siam economy. Later the Government employed Chinese for rail and canal construction projects rather than continue with the traditional Asian practice of forced and unpaid corvee labour. The site of the Grand Place and Wat Phrao Kaeo was originally that of the 17th century Chinese settlement in Bangkok.
- Until the 20th C most Chinese migrants from China were men who took Thai wives so soon the Chinese character was merged with Thai. General Taksin who became King in 1778 was half Chinese. The Sino Siamese children assimilated and were successful with education so by the end of the 19th-C they were well represented in the Government bureaucracy.
- The Chinese became city dwellers (mainly in Bangkok) and were in close collaboration with international business so that now they dominate the modern Thai economy. In the beginning of the 20th century more Chinese women arrived from China to marry with Chinese men and have Chinese children, so throughout the 20th century and today the Chinese tradition continues distinctly in its own right, whilst others with Chinese ancestors, have mixed traditions. Those Thai ladies of mixed descent recognise their Chinese ancestors but the Chinese traditions are often lost.
- Accordingly he who understands these matters, can with a few relevant questions appreciate more about the subject of Thai ladies, Thai girls etc. Additionally he will also appreciate the importance of Buddhism, animism and beliefs in spirits, depending upon the ethnic character of the particular Thai lady.
