The Nung-Rawang people are an ethnic group who inhabit far northern Kachin State of Myanmar (Burma). They speak a language related to Kachin.According to Kachin legend, the Nung-Rawang were the first of six brother from whom the main Kachin families are descended.
The Nung-Rawang live in some of the most remote valleys and mountains in all of Myanmar. During the British colonial period, their very existence was thought to be a myth, as incoherent reports of "pygmy tribes" in the mountains of north Burma surfaced from time to time. The Nung-Rawang are short in stature, and are known for their crossbow hunting skills, but no definitive anthropological study has ever been conducted on this remote ethnic group.
