Abstract

In my paper I discuss the ethnic conflict among the Siamese majority and the minority. Due to the amount of ethnic diversity I limited my research to three groups: The Mon, Hmong and the Malays of Southern Thailand. Within these groups my parameters were religion, language and ethnic rank. These groups also illustrate various degrees of ethnic conflict. I comment that religion and the use of Thai language is very important in being Thai by Thai standards. Ethnic rank also relates to the awareness of being Thai. Because of the lack of information of these subjects, I comment that more research and study must be done in order to fully understand the problem.
