The creation of the nation-state of the Siam Kingdom had changed feelings of people from monarchy-bound to area-bound. The recreation of geographical map and modern development created developed and under-developed regions, creating groups of people unable to access state development and making them marginalized. The above contexts made the Thin-Yuan people feel different, inferior, stateless, and non-citizens.
Despite being marginalized and de-civilized, the ethnic group responded by using social power at the community and network levels to negotiate for being nationalized, socio-economic development, state service provision, and their ethnic identity creation and reproduction. Furthermore, the ethnic group utilized mechanisms from state policies for discourse reproduction in order to use it in their battle space.
