The Hill Tribes are various ethnic minorities that reside in the war-torn Pha Phlung province of Phaic Tăn. While native to Phaic Tăn, they're distinct from the ethnic Phaic Tănese. Whereas ethnic Phaic Tănese primarily reside in the Buhng Lung, Thong On and Sukkondat provinces, their populations are less common in Pha Phlung province, where the Hill Tribe populations are most concentrated. Phaic Tănese refer to them as "humounga", which means insurgent, as the Hill Tribes have been resisting Phaic Tănese control, resulting in fierce warfare. Sadly, most of these cultures are being destroyed by modernization and tourism.
