Introduction / History
The Chak are believed to have come to Bangladesh from Myanmar. Intertribal marriages are not uncommon among the Chak, and they marry with groups such as the Marma and Chakma, with whom they share a number of religious and cultural practices. One community leader said that when the Chak marry outside their group, they typically learn the languages of those they marry.
