Lachik is a Kachin sub-tribe. It has its own language/dialect. The sub-tribes are Rawang, the Lisu, the Zaiwa, the Lashi/Lachik, the Lawngwaw and Jingpo. A group of seven sub-tribes call Kachin (Wunhpawng).

The majority of Lachik people live in northern Burma's Kachin State and bordering areas between Myanmar and China.

Dress[edit]

Lachik costumes differ from other Kachin sub-tribes and have specific meaning.
