Starting at an early age, women of the Padaung tribe wear a coil of brass rings around their necks. This collar, and the elongated appearance it gives their necks over time, are Padaung symbols they wear proudly. In their native Myanmar, Padaung people often faced persecution over these visible tribal symbols. Now, having relocated to a Thailand refugee camp, these Padaung women continue this centuries-old custom, memorializing the struggles of the past and maintaining a link to their tribe's history. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe #NationalGeographic #NeckStretching #Myanmar About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.
