Bawm

Les Bawm sont un groupe ethnique :

Au Bangladesh, au terme de l'accord de paix du 2 décembre 1997 qui a mis fin à plus de 20 années de conflit entre le gouvernement et les populations autochtones des Chittagong Hill Tracts, les Bawm seront représentés au "Chittagong Hill Tracts Regional Council" qui sera chargé de l'administration des 3 districts constituant la région.

Suite aux efforts des missionnaires chrétiens britanniques depuis 1918, la majorité des Bawn est aujourd'hui convertie au christianisme.

Langue

La langue bawm appartient au groupe dit "kuki-chin-naga" de la branche tibéto-birmane des langues sino-tibétaines.
