I collect information about the different tribes of our planet. I'm interested in all of their original culture, history, traditions, religion, rituals, language, perception, folklore, social norms. After gathering the necessary amount of information I will be able to write course work, in consequence of the thesis.

Hi I was just wondering, I know Pwo Karen people one of them is actually my boyfriend but oftentimes I find that we may not be able to be together. His mother I'm guessing doesn't want me to be with her son and she would prefer her son marry a Karen girl instead. I love him so much but I am a non Karen. And he actually is the one who told me I love you. I'm afraid that we love each other but sadly are sorta doomed to never be together. Is the Karen to Karen only marriage accurate? Is a non Karen marriage looked down upon? He wants to follow his heart and be with me but his mother doesn't like that her son fell for a non Karen. We both live in the us and his mother is in Burma. Can we get married? Is it possible? I feel like if we do his mother will hate us both.
