Shan

The Shan make up approximately 10% of Myanmar’s population. The Shan, or Tai Yai as they call themselves, are the second-largest nationality in the Union of Myanmar. Close relatives of the Thai, the Shan mainly inhabit the upland areas of northeast Myanmar. They work mostly as wet-rice farmers and practice Theravada Buddhism.
