In Search of Chin Identity

A Study in Religion, Politics and Ethnic Identity in Burma

The conversion of the Chin to Christianity from their traditional religion had unintended consequences as they became involved in Burmese independence movements and began to articulate their own Christian traditions of democracy. Just how Christianity has provided the Chin people with a means of preserving their national identity in the midst of multi-ethnic and multi-religious environments is the main focus of this study.
