Earlier in the month I attended the Myitkyina Manau festival commemorating the 60th Anniversary of the establishment of northern Burma’s Kachin State. Over the coming days I expect to post a range of material from the festival that will give readers a taste of this major cultural, political and economic event.
If there are specific issues that New Mandala readers would like to see discussed, please post a comment. I have hundreds and hundreds of images, hours of video footage and fairly copious notes. There should be plenty that will be of interest. Long-time readers may recall that I have previously written about a Manau festival here (and here and here).
