Introduction / History
The Anu and Hkongso people speak related dialects and can understand each other's dialects well. The villages of the Anu and Hkongso are situated to the east of the Kaladan River in Paletwa Township. Most of the villages are located around the Kyauk Pan Daung, a flat-topped rocky mountain which is a geo-graphical landmark of the region. Many Hkongso villages are scattered from the northeast to the west of the mountain and along the Michaung River, and most Anu villages are along the Daletmay Chaung farther to the west of the mountain. Cultivation is the main work among the Anu and Hkongso. They grow crops in their fields like oranges, mangoes, bananas, rice, sesame seeds, chili, and ginger. Selling crops from their farms is the way the people have of earning cash. The majority of the Anu and Hkongso people are Christians. There are a wide variety of church denominations among them. They are currently using Khumi [cnk] and Burmese [mya] Bibles in their churches.
