Why Do These Women Stretch Their Necks? | National Geographic

Starting at an early age, women of the Padaung tribe wear a coil of brass rings around their necks. This collar, and the elongated appearance it gives their necks over time, are Padaung symbols they wear proudly. In their native Myanmar, Padaung people often faced persecution over these visible tribal symbols. Now, having relocated to a Thailand refugee camp, these Padaung women continue this centuries-old custom, memorializing the struggles of the past and maintaining a link to their tribe’s history.

  18. well thankfully we have some painful customs like Sati removed in my country. In case of painful customs as such there much be a choice whether an individual of the tribe wants to follow it or not.People can't do like "Jump..! Its a part of who u are". Because technically there wouldn't be any part of her left once she jumps in the fire as in case of Sati. U can always follow the other (painless ones) and still preserve ur identity.
