isan in thailand
Q When did the Thai ethic Chinese started to arrive in Thailand?
I mean their ancestor
A No-one really knows; about 1000 years ago is probably a reasonable estimate. At that time, what is now Thailand was under the domination of the Khmer Empire from the east – from Angkor in Cambodia. Before that the Dvaravati kingdom, an Indianic civilization (from the West), covered most of what is now Thailand. Before that, who knows? Prehistoric remains have been found in Kanchanaburi and in Isan. Whatever the case, the people that migrated from Yunnan were not the first. However, it is speculated that the founder of the Kingdom of Ayutthaya in 1351 was a merchant of Chinese ancestry.
Thailand has always been a melting-pot for people from many races e.g. Mon, Khmer and Tai and most are thoroughly inter-married by now. This mixing of DNA is one of the reasons that many Thai people appear so good-looking.

Regional characteristics and regional language feature prominently in discussions of Thai identity, but there is little mention of regional literatures. In northeastern Thailand’s Isan region, authors write primarily in Thai, but it is possible nonetheless to identify an Isan literature, which played a significant and at times pivotal role in the development of Thai literature in the second half of the 20th century, as authors grappled with how their origins and experiences related to the Thai centre. Martin Platt’s account of Isan literature is an important first step toward a broader study of regional literatures in Thailand, and shapes a model that has relevance for examining literary works in other Asian countries.

This volume is the culmination of a rare 40-year longitudinal study of customs and belief relating to pregnancy and childbirth in Thailand’s Isaan region.
Anders Poulsens term as a UNESCO expert terminated in 1962, but he has returned to the same area of Northeast Thailand many times since, most recently in 2005. As such, this beautifully illustrated volume offers a rare study of Isan-Thai customs and belief associated with pregnancy and birth and how they have changed over almost half a century. Using a psychological and socio-therapeutic framework, Anders Poulsen discusses the function of various birth rites as well as giving an unmatched description of all traditions specifically connected to pregnancy and birth. He includes an interesting description of the tradition of confinement by fire (yuu-fai) and documents that it is still widely practiced, contrary to what has been reported. He also puts forward a theory of why some traditions maintain their importance while others fade away. The findings of this study are supported by the transcription in Isan (and translated into English) of the ritual texts that are used in these rites.
