Following article was compiled from the “Conversion of the Chin in Burma: The Creation of an Elite” by Bianca Son (Mang Khan Cing) Ph.d, daughter of the late Dr. Vumson Suantak, her thesis paper for Master of Science at International School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Department of Contemporary Asian Studies, Universiteit van Amsterdam (August 2007).

The previous chapter demonstrated a carefully constructed effort of the Hakha to separate themselves first from the Burman and then from other Zomi, resulting in a Hakha elite.  This section examines how this elite has used Christianity to gain political power within Burma, specifically by creating a new Christian community, the Hakha have vied for leadership of the whole of the Chin.  They have further parlayed their Christianity to gain attention and power on the world stage.

The 1964 Emergence of Zo Separatism in East Zoram

The 1964 movement began without any organization or planning and resulted from a variety of government actions and policies. One factor was that Zo members of parliament were angry with the military government of General Ne Win for dissolving parliament. This meant that their hard won seats provided no more work or income, and they were forced to be idle. (more…)

History of the Zo Mi (Chin) race according to Sithu Dr. Vum Ko Hau

[Note: Compiled from the "Profile of A Burma Frontier Man" - 1963 by Vum Ko Hau (Ph.D)]pdf

“The Chin is of interest, because he reveals the material out of which Buddhism and civilisation have between them evolved the Burmese people; the Chin, in short, is the rough wood out of which the Burman has been carved”. – “The Silken East”, by V. C . Scott O’Connor

The Chin Hills Gazetteer recorded the facts that Zo (Chins) and the so called Kukis were one and the same race and that Soktes, Yos and Kamhaus were one people. It further summarized the fact that all belong to one and the same Kuki race. Had the word Kuki been changed to Zo at that time, the right word for calling the various tribes and clans of the Zo race inhabiting the areas joining Burma, East Pakistan and Assam would have been answered a long time ago. This publication was rare for a long time and was not available to later authors on the various races of Burma. (more…)
