Some people still extract food in Thailand hunting and collecting
The people of Thailand occupying distant areas to the West from Nana, пхи тонг луанг (Phi Tong Luang) («spirits of yellow leaves»), represent the remains of nomad tribes of Thailand extracting food in Thailand at the expense of hunting and collecting. Their way of life, like a life of many other tribes of natives, promptly loses feature. The nationality пхи тонг луанг believes that spirits will become angry, if the tribe settles on one place, will get cattle or will sow grain therefore their residence in Thailand is only temporary shelters from branches and leaves of wild banana, and they make travel in Thailand from place to place as leaves will turn yellow. For this reason they have received the poetic Thai name though they call themselves «мраби» — «the wood people». Usually, they hardly survive at the expense of wood hunting with a spear, putting a drag-net on birds and small mammals, digging out korenye and collecting nuts, seeds and medical.
Features of the people of Thailand пхи тонг луанг
The recent obezleseniye because of cutting down and podsechno-fire agriculture has badly affected the district where there live tribes, and has compelled many people in Thailand пхи тонг луанг to be employed to farmers of nationalities хмонг and мьен (it is obvious, spirits do not become angry if the tribe lives and works at another’s earth). Because of compliance and inability to use means, «spirits of yellow leaves» often force to do unfairly hard work for which pay in food. Not including that, they are not rather perfectly prepared to speak with curious and often tactless tourists though one Yankee working with mountain tribes, considers that repeating excursion rounds to their villages help these people to develop in Thailand, as they learn more about other people in world around. The future пхи тонг луанг sees not so joyful: this nationality totals only 100-200 people, their susceptibility to diseases (in particular to malaria) is very high, and the standard of living is very low.
