Rakhine state

Meet the Chin people, a forgotten community from Myanmar. Qualified by Human Rights Watch as the "Forgotten People", the Chin people are of Tibet-Mongolian origin. They probably came to Burma in the late ninth or tenth century A.D. During my trip in April, I had the opportunity to visit 4 villages long the Lemro river into the Rakhine red territory: Kheik Chaung, Sun Sway Jo, Pan Paung and Cho May villages. One particularity and ancient rite of this remote population are the women face tattoos. Meant to prevent invaders from stealing away the local women, young women were tattoed before the age of getting married. Tattooing took over a day to complete and was extremely painful, especially the eyelid area. Each area of Chin state has a distinct tattoo pattern, so it is actually possible to discern where a woman comes from by the pattern on her face. The practice is no longer permitted by the Burmese authorities, nor is the younger generation interested in partaking in the custom. Therefore, this part of Chin culture will soon be gone, so you witness here the last living generation and alive women who embrace this custom.

The Rohingya, an ethnic Muslim group in majority Buddhist Myanmar, are often said to be the world's most persecuted minority. They consist of one million of the total 50 million population. In Rakhine about 140,000 Rohingya live in ghetto-like camps that they are not allowed to leave without government permission. They are denied citizenship and cannot vote or identify themselves as Rohingya. Their rights to work, marry, practise their religion and access to health and education are restricted. The UN human rights office has reported on gross violations against the Rohingya.
