BACKGROUNDER

The Shan State Army was established in the 1960's by various rebel groups, funded by taxes on drugs. Their purpose was to establish an independent country for the Shan (Tai Yai) people, located in the eastern part of Burma. The Shan people are ethnically related to the Thai, Lao and Chinese and are sometimes referred to as Tai. The rebel army was disbanded in the mid-1960's but other similar groups have been since constituted.

In 1973, the Burmese government signed an agreement with the USA to eradicated poppy cultivation thereby eliminating the Shan nationalist movements. A number of successor groups continue today - Eastern Shan State Army (EClick to EnlargeSSA), Mong Tai Army (MTA), Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army (MNDAA) and the United Wa State Army (UWSA). They are reportedly actively involved in the drug trade.

On 17.5.2005 the Shan State made a Click to EnlargeDeclaration of Independence and the Shan Government was elected by the people. On 25.3.2005 His Royal Highness, Prince Hso Khan Pha Yawn Hwe was sworn in as President and Head of State of the Federated Shan States.

The legal basis of the succession was declared to be that the Shan people were never under the rule of the Kings of Burma or of the British Colony of Burma. A complete government has been formed but has not received widespread recognition as yet.

The 1960's banknotes shown above are quite scarce and do not come on the market very often. The 1 Tep is the most scarce with the 5 Tep being found occasionally.

The Federated Shan States currently uses the Burmese Kyat as its currency.
