The Home of an Eastern Clan by Leslie Milne $22.00

The Home of an Eastern Clan by Leslie Milne

A Study of the Palaungs of the Shan States

The Home of an Eastern Clan is a detailed study on all aspects of life and culture of the Palaungs of the Shan States. This study, which was researched in the 1910's and published in 1924, deals for most part with the Katur tribe of the Palaungs. They live in or near Namhsan, the capital of Tawngpeng, which was nominally a Shan State but which was governed by a Palaung chief then, and inhabited almost entirely by Palaungs. The Palaungs are a mon-Khmer speaking group (as are the Lamet of Laos).

Since her first encounters with the Palaungs in 1906 the author learned the language of the main dialect spoken in Namhsan. This scarce book is still one of the main studies on the subject and covers chapters on babies, young girls and boys, young men and maidens, marriage, the dwelling and home life, village life, medicine, customs on child birth and death, religion and cosmology, and some details on proverbs and folktales - indeed, most topics a female author would explore.
