      All I can say is two thousand years is a heck of a hell long time.

   Glad to know these indigenous natives are still around.

This is a wonderful thread... Good to know that there is a bunch of people here who care enough to talk about the Chinese-looking tribals of the Northeast India...

Yes, but I wish the "bunch of people here..." were a little better educated. It is a hell of a waste of my time to address their numerous false claims. The "Chinese-looking" indigenous peoples could also be called "Mongolian-looking people" or "Korean-looking people". They have nothing in common with China.

Speaking about Myanmar [formerly Burma], that tragic ridden country had been suffering for centuries; first under Colonialism, then through boycotted by the West, when impoverished country turned to Socialism. That on going crisis in Myanmar is a product of Colonialism, when the nation was made part of India, and around 8 millions immigrants poured into homogeneous nation in long Colonial era, including Rohingya Bengalis from Bangladesh, which is populous country with around 165 million people, that had been sending millions of illegal immigrants into Myanmar for ages that Myanmar has declared national emergency in Rakhine State in early Eighties, but Western news medias ignored it all, as Myanmar had been boycotted by the West, ever since the  impoverished nation turned Socialism after long Colonial era; and as a result, hardly any one out side Myanmar knew truths.
There's hardly any Muslim, Hindu or Christian in Myanmar up until Colonialism, when the small homogeneous nation was put inside Greater India, thus several millions South Asian immigrants moved in; while neighbors such as Laos, Cambodia & Vietnam under French Colonialism had no immigration issue at all.
  It's all about British & their South Asian fellows that they used as soldiers and servants to protect their worldwide Colonial Empire as Colonial master extracted wealth for century; and their territorial expansion into Myanmar through immigration ,rewards from master, by the way, which eventually end up a small homogeneous nation, paying ultimate prices.
  In my humble opinion why not some Arab countries take them back since many of them in South Asia are ethnically, culturally and  religiously similar to those in Arabian Peninsula.
Myanmar also probably endured worst immigration onslaught under long Colonialism, when around six million immigrants moved in, as small homogeneous country was put inside Greater India; while neighbors such as Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam under French Colonialism had no immigration problems at all.
Again, there's hardly any Muslim, Hindu or Christian in Myanmar up until Colonialism centuries earlier; when the small homogeneous country was placed inside Greater India; thus several millions immigrants from South Asia moved in.

You seem to be vindicating the Burmese Fascist rulers and their acts of genocide. I don't even believe Burma ever was a homogeneous "country". A country it was made in recent times; what it was before the Brits came to S Asia is unclear but it never was a nation state.

A nation state it became thanks to the Brits. Even India never was a nation state. Today India is home to various different cultures and races, so it is hard to see why a small and sheltered place such as Burma should be home to only one race and one culture. The Rohingyas did not invade "Burma". It was a crime for the Fascist rulers that took control of newly independent Burma to deny them citizenship.

So while you can legitimately blame the Brits for attracting immigrants to Burma you should not deny the Rohingyas the right to be where they were born - in Rakhine state.

All else is racism and the regime under Aung San Suu Kyi is guilty of genocide. They are criminals and should stand trial for crimes against humanity

As I was saying Myanmar government had declared national emergency in Rakhine State ever since way back in early 1980, and dealing with this issue for several decades now, but Western government and Western news medias ignored it all, as Myanmar had been boycotted by the West, ever since the impoverished nation turned to Socialism after long and painful Colonial era; and as a result, hardly any one out side Myanmar knew what's going on there.
