The Burmese Kachin

The Burmese Kachin

A close-knit community of Burmese Kachin immigrants invite Sean to witness a traditional ceremony and take part in the feast that follows. Jack-Saw-Win Nyein, a member of the Burmese Karen, recently married Mary Saing Marip, a member of the Burmese Kachin. Following tradition, Jack must receive a new name and be officially welcomed into the Kachin tribe. The ceremony is an arresting sight, with vivid colours, traditional customs and music. Home grown vegetables and herbs form the basis of a delicious and fragrant meal that includes Marinated whole fish wrapped in Banana Leaf, Barbequed Ox Tongue and Pennywort Leaf Salad all washed down with home made rice wine.
