Abstract

          There were two levels of adaptations and strategies in accessing to land and forest resources for sustainable livelihood and survival of the Dara'ang or Palaung ethnic group at Pang Daeng Nai Village, which was a newly-established community. At the community level, it was found that the group incorporated its ethnic beliefs into a new concept in accessing and managing forest resources by maintaining traditional practices with sacred entities and the forest. At the same time, the ethnic group implemented the concept of community forest and participated in the Ping River Watershed Community Forest Network of Chiang Dao District in order to enhance its negotiation power. Additionally, the ethnic group created the right to reside in and exploit the forest by weaving Buddhist tales and the belief in Palaung-Thai relationship to establish a connection expressing the belief that the ethnic group used to live in this region before. Moreover, the ethnic group expressed its existence in the society so that it could be accepted by the outside world by eagerly and willingly cooperating with concerned state agencies and other networks that it partook in activities, especially cultural activities. At the individual level, when capitalism entered their livelihood, the ethnic villagers have had to depend more on external marketing while reproduction is limited on the same land. As a consequence, production methods have to be changed from subsistence to commercial production for more monetary gains. More villagers have turned to commercial crops instead of rice, which take shorter time to reap but bring in more money. In order to increase family income, some have become daily wage earners while others have provided homestay services for tourists or organized trekking tours.
