The Faces of Hooh Yoh
Meet the people of Hooh Yoh Village
In years of work with the Akha we see more than dusty roads, dry fields, mud, clusters of huts in the verdant jungle, we see faces, lined with care, without a voice, not asking for much, wanting to be left alone, working to keep their culture, their language and their hope alive.
Hooh Yoh is no exception. A village whose old people remember their fathers being in Thailand 75 years before them, the years way before Khun Sa, before anyone but hilltribe were in these mountains.
Akha women discuss the days events, the loss of land, and question what they will feed their children?
The Army is in the village on a daily basis.
