Description: Burma image, WA0506. Chinbok woman. H & S
'Chinbok' was a terms that was used in reference to certain communities of Chin people who lived in the south of the Chin hills region, close to the plains. Although it was widely used by the administration in colonial Burma, and had probably been derived from Burmese usage, the term was considered highly offensive by those to whom it was applied, having connotations of 'rottenness' or something foul smelling.
