The Kachin are like the Burmans a TibetoBurman tribe. They live in the mountainous and barely accessible North of Myanmar. Just like the Karen the Kachin making up about 6 % of the Burmese population have been fighting for decades for a sovereign state. The Kachin Independence Army counts about 5,000 armed men. Most Kachin are animists, but some of them have converted to Christianity.
