Description: Burma image, WA0597. [A group of Kachin women with baskets crossing the bamboo bridge.] (Researcher's notes in brackets)
A wooden yoke is used by men when carrying loads. It has a brow band attached and the support of the load can be transferred from shoulders to brow at will. The yoke is not used by women who carry everything in their shingno back basket. The basket is suspended from a brow band which is at times, however, placed around the upper arms and chest. Pigs or other articles which cannot conveniently be placed in a basket are attached to a bamboo framework which is carried on the back. Water is carried by the women in bamboos [dissertation, 1934:144-145]
