Abstract

The investigation explored translocality, livelihood, ethnicity, and the values of the Shan residing in both sides of the Yunnan-Burmese border by trading and selling products in the border area. The data were collected from field surveys and interviews in order to ascertain changes in the ethnic socio-cultural aspects.
    
It is found that, after Burma's opening up, economic policy changes, and the establishment of relationship with the Chinese government, the border area has seen various changes. For instance, the social status of women and occupations have changed. There are more trade opportunities, accelerating cross-border migration for trade and business. Certain cultural aspects have also changed. Shan people use more Thai products and wear clothes manufactured in Thailand, because they believe that Shan and Thai are lineally related. They are different from Chinese.
