ETHNOLOGY & HILL TRIBES

  

 

 

  Inthu

 

Myanmar

Whereas the name Intha is actually reserved for the men (fig.) of this ethnic group, the women are in fact referred to as Inthu. The collour of their traditional dress is same to that of the men, i.e. orangey-salmon to beige in colour and reminiscent to that of the Shan people. However, the name Intha is usually also used to refer to the entire group, who live on Inle Lake (fig.) in Myanmar's Shan State.
