Description[edit | edit source]
The Shans are an ethnic group related to the Thais and the Laotians. After the fall of the Burmese dominated Bagan Kingdom to the Mongols in 1287, a succession of Shan kingdoms known by historians as the Shan States controlled much of today's Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, as well as China's Yunnan Province.
