On the 28 August 2014 I went to visit a house church for a prayer meeting and saw a calendar. The pictures and the wordings disturbed me. So here I share that for all of us to think about.

Picture 1 for May-June 2014: Lisu is mentioned as a one of the seven tribes of Singpho. That is strange because that is NOT true. I have heard in Myanmar those seven tribes are called Kachin but not here.

Picture 2 for July-August 2014: Look at the baskets (right picture). They are Lisu handmade.

    This is plain falsehood to claim Lisu Material culture as Singpho’s or to say that Lisu is an Ethnic group of Singpho ! This category of usurping will destroys one’s credibility.
