8th Anniversary of Karenni Kay Htoe Boe

Mu Hpare had attended the 8th Anniversary Kay Htoe Boe Event in Austin, Minnesota on April 23rd, 2017. This annual Dee Ku event showcases the Karenni Culture. The Dee Ku is an Animist Religion festival celebrated by dancing, giving of thanks, feasting, and sharing of their culture. The Dee Ku is held annually wherever the Karenni populations may reside. Mu Hpare, CEO of Song Birds International, LLC, is proud to have lived with the Karenni people. The Karenni and Kayan (Mu Hpare’s people) are both hill tribes of Myanmar. Closely related but differences in some Culture and Language. Mu Hpare is one of the very few people that can Interpret or Translate the Karenni Language, and still fewer to have the Cultural component intact. Many of the younger generation that have been fortunate enough to mature in the United States and were granted the luxury of school have unfortunately lost the ability to retain their Culture and have difficulty fully understanding how to Interpret or Translate the information. This Event Showcases one of the many Cultural aspects that are rapidly disappearing. Song Birds International can help you communicate effectively with Tribal Immigrants where that Cultural Component is desperately needed.
