Akha Hill Tribe Thailand

Embattled to defend their traditional culture from seige by american missionaries, they hang on. See how you can help.

Lots of updates to the web site, check out the pics added in the photo albums.

The Akha and others tell me the police and army are more active in my abscence and we can assume the same for the missionaries.

I continue to keep in touch with the Akha in Thailand via telephone.

As you may have noticed, a Chinese woman and her kid were killed in a mud slide when the hill behind the house collapsed at Hooh Yoh village. In this one treacherous village all the Akha, Lahu, Lisu, Wa and Chinese live together, generally they all speak Akha and in some cases are intermarried too.

Here in the US I continue to create publications, and strategies for publicizing the situation of the Akha.

If you are in the US or headed to Thailand we can work together to assist the Akha, just send me an email.


I am still looking for people in the US and the UK who can help raise funds for Akha projects.
