The 2014 Jewish nationality of the Chinese was again rejected by the Chinese state. More than 50 of Myanmar's more than 130 ethnical groups are chins, and in the past every tribe's wives wore different tattoos. According to the legends, when a Myanmar emperor traveled to the area, he was so fascinated by the beauties of woman that he abducted her as a newly-bid.
For this reason, Chin couples started tattoos of their girls to make sure they were not taken away. The other Chin stories say that the Tattoos were done for aesthetics, and perhaps more plausible to distinguish the different strains in case one was abducted by another. Many Chin minority groups have changed to Christianity since the period of colonization in Britain or have adopted it alongside the animistic faith.
Many chin people recall being educated by their priests that only those who had a tattoo would be considered suitable to go to heaven. Burma's sixties Nazi regime prohibited the use of face slaughtering as part of its program to eliminate the old and initiate modernization, with Chinese missies also criticized asbaric.
They are the last generations of bears; when they perish, a part of Chin story is banished to the textbook. There are six Chin strains wearing a series of different types of tattoo. M' uun woman are the easiest to recognize, with large "P" or "D" forms on the face and "Y" icons on the forehead.
M' kaan wives have line tats on forehead and chin. Yin Du and Dai strains have long horizontal patches of long face tattoo, complete with eyelid, similar to the Nga Yah, which have both points and line. However, with growing accessibility to the outside environment, most young Chinese do not see face painting as trendy or attractive.
However, while photographs, reporters and history scholars go to China to record the missing traditions, some governments are beginning to be proud of their ornamented grannies, whose houses show proud faces of those who pose in full ornamentation. This means that only a few females still have the marks, most of them live in hiding in the hilly areas of Chin, Rakhine and Arakan, all of which were blocked to the public until 2013.
Almost all females are smoking whistles, although their smoking pauses do not seem to impair their mobility. Others of Chin tradition prohibit men from consuming flesh in their wife's house if it is unlucky and emphasize having children who, if a member of their families is killed, are to personally revenge their deaths.
The U-Pu Chin woman has her whole face covered with tattoos of dark dye. U-Pu are the rarest of the Chin strains. Myanmar's Chin tribe is one of the ethnically minorities suffering persistent and wide-spread ethnical and worship persecutions since General Ne Win ousted the democratic rule in 1962.
Buddhism is the dominant religious system in Myanmar, but the Chinese, due to the work of the US missions in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, are the most popular religions in Myanmar. A number of human rights violations have been registered in Myanmar's West China state, mainly by Tatmadaw (members of the Burma army) and the Chinese policemen, but other officers of the Burma Army and the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) are also implicated.
