Long Necked Karen

The Karen is a small tribe in Thailand, that originated from Burma, and are known for their long necks.  Girls begin putting rings on their necks at 5 or 6, and every year after more brass rings are added. The long necks represent beauty and status.

  1. My what a graceful long neck you have Brady! Wild thoughts. I love the look on your face! Looks like another fun memory. By the way, did you know that the ongoing persecution of the Karen by the Burmese army is depicted in the 2008 film RAMBO 4???
