Eng hill tribe family, Kengtung, Myanmar — February 20, 2005

The Eng, also known as Ann or Enn, are a part of the Mon-Khmer linguistic family, along with their neighbours the Palaung, Loi and Wa, and so have inhabited the hills of Kengtung for many centuries, pre-dating the migration of the Shan as well as the more recent arrivals of Sino-Tibetan groups such as Lahu and Akha. These days though they are restricted to just a handful of villages north and east of Kengtung town. More info here.
