The Karen Tribe is an ethnic group that lives in Myanmar (Burma) and Thailand. In Thailand it is also known as Kariang. It has a total populance of 7,400,000, of which 7,000,000 live in Myanmar and 400,000 live in Thailand.

The language spoken here is Karen. This language is divided as part of the Tibeto-Burman group of the Sino-Tibetan language family. It is also considered a bit different, since this language does not have any kind of chinese influence over it.

Among this tribe January 31st is considered the "Karen Revolutionary Day". This day represents the day in 1949, when the battle for autonomy started.

The religion followed by the tribe is basically, Buddhism, Christianity and Animism.

During the World War II, Karen supported British, because the Japanese were trying to take over this region. However, due to massive killing, the Japanese managed to invade the region.
