LAHU
 
Some call them Muso and some as Kwi. They belong to the Lolo sub-group of the Tibeto-Burman group that diverted to the east. There're altogether two Lahu sub-groups. They are found mainly near Mongsat, Mong Pan and Kyaington. Some are even found around Mong Lun.
The men dress in black; their headdress, their jackets as well as the trousers are black. But sometimes the men's jackets are trimmed with red or green stripes. The women's dresses are mostly long and black. They extend up to the ankles. The headdresses are also black. Some women's dresses have horizontal black stripes. Some women wear silver rings around their necks. Some have earplugs, necklaces, bracelets and rings also. Some woman dresses have small silver orbs stitched to the front part.
The main festivals are the harvest festival and New Year festival. The Lahus are mainly engaged in agriculture and hunt in their spare time. They believe in foretelling of the future and the village shaman will use the bones of a rooster for that purpose. The young men of the village play the flute when going courting. Only the eldest son has the right of inheritance.
