Title: Mapping Thagara Village: Intangible Heritage of an Ancient Site near Dawei
Date of publication: 26 July 2015
Description/subject: "...We have selected an ancient site called Thagara located ten kilometers north of Dawei for two reasons. Firstly, as explained above, the habitation areas of ancient Thagara are little known. The site is a raised mound clearly demarcated with a series of up to four earthen and brick ramparts and moats. The area inside the walls is densely populated while the perimeter outside the walls is cultivated, primarily rice fields. Secondly, the Dawei houses are urban rather than the rural types found at Thagara. The traditional hearths and rice barns of the Thagara houses typify the agricultural way of life of southern Myanmar. While some houses have modernized, using income from family members who have returned from periods of work abroad, most of Thagara’s houses use traditional methods of construction.".....Paper delivered at the International Conference on Burma/Myanmar Studies: Burma/Myanmar in Transition: Connectivity, Changes and Challenges: University Academic Service Centre (UNISERV), Chiang Mai University, Thailand, 24-­26 July 2015.

Title: Preservation of Dawei People’s Traditional Custom
Date of publication: 26 July 2015
Description/subject: Abstract: "There are many unique traditional customs of the national races of Myanmar who are living in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. The study of the traditional customs of a national race of Myanmar is the best way to learn about the traditional customs of Myanmar. The culture of a country is its life-blood. If the culture of a country had disappeared, the people of this country will be vanished completely. Today is the globalization age, therefore, preservation of our own culture is very necessary for all. As Dawei is situated in the southern part of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, it is far from upper and central Myanmar. As a result, the traditional customs of Dawei people are different from the others. As Dawei is located at the inner part of Tanintharyi coastal region, it is a region where ancient traditional culture, folk songs, traditional dance and dialects can be preserved. The study focused on the unique traditional customs of Dawei People which are different from the traditional customs of oth er national races of Myanmar. This paper emphasizes some traditional customs of Daweis and famous religious festivals preserved untill today. It will contribute to understand the preservation of traditional customs of Dawei people and their preservations.".....Paper delivered at the International Conference on Burma/Myanmar Studies: Burma/Myanmar in Transition: Connectivity, Changes and Challenges: University Academic Service Centre (UNISERV), Chiang Mai University, Thailand, 24-­26 July 2015.
