Myanmar’s ancient fiction of 101 Lumyo or Races.

Compare this with Myanmar’s official fiction of 135 “national races”.

Both are fictions. You will notice VAST DIFFERENCES.

What happened to the dozens of “ancient races” mentioned in this 17th century note compiled by the late Burmese historian Than Tun?

How did the new 135 “national races” come about? Do you actually know or meet any of them, in your daily life or throughout your life?

Do you notice some don’t exist or never been seen in real life of our nation?
