Myu tsaw, mung tsaw share shagan ni a matu ga shagawp (anhte myu sha shada shagrau hkat ga)
Myu sha lawt lam a matu
Tinggyeng akyu nang n-yu
Myu tsaw, mung tsaw shawang myit
Tinang hkum hkrat sum na nang nhkrit
Wunpawng myu sha yawng a sari
Galoi mung n-shayawm ai na shagri
Shingdu aman chyu-pala
Wunpawng mung dan hkrat sum na nang machya
Tsan tsan mada manbalu nang nlu
Karai jaw ai myi hpe nang machyu
Wunpawng mung dan shim lam
Loili yup-nga na pyi nang nkam

Kachin, tribal peoples occupying parts of northeastern Myanmar (Burma) and contiguous areas ofIndia (Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland) and China (Yunnan). The greatest number of Kachin live in Myanmar (roughly 790,000), but some 150,000 live in China and a few thousand in India. Numbering about 1012,000 in the late 20th century, they speak a variety of languages of the Tibeto-Burman group and are thereby distinguished as Jinghpaw, or Jingpo (Chingpaw [Ching-p’o], Singhpo), Atsi, Maru (Longvo), Lachid, Nung (Rawang), and Lisu .
The traditional Kachin religion is a form of animistic ancestor cult entailing animalsacrifice. As a result of the arrival of American and European missionaries in Burma beginning in the late 19th century, a majority of the Kachin are Christian, mainly Baptist and Roman Catholic. Among the Kachin in India, Buddhism predominates.
