Culture : Till the time British conquered the Chin Hills in 1895, Chins were ruled themselves by chieftains. The Chin leaders joined with other ethnic minority leaders of Burma and signed the historic Panglong Agreement on February 12, 1947 to achieve independence from the British. Barely one month after the independence of Burma, the first Chin National Conference was held from February 19 to 22 at Falam town in Chin land and it was attended by more than 5,000 Chin nationals. On the second day of the conference, the participants decided to eliminate the existing feudal Chieftainship and adopt a
