Preserve Karen Culture Through Celebration!

Update posted by Karen Moy On Nov 11, 2015

Ok, we knew you were all amazing people...but WOW did you guys raise funds fast. We already hit our first goal for the wedding! We can not thank you enough.

Now, additional dollars raised will go to

  1. A larger wedding -- meaning more villagers, food and space.
  2. Fundraising the to bring NEW elephants back to Hauy Pakoot. That's help towards more elles in natural living environments.

This is happening, thanks to each and everyone one of you!

The sites up...now help us make this happen!

Here's what's happening in Huay Pakoot to prepare:

  • The homestay families (Root, Scion & Orichon) are all informing the entire village of the date -- 11/21 -- by mouth! There's no email, so it takes a little time.
  • Root is prepping the sacrificial pig (mainly selecting which one will work)
  • Scion & Orichon are starting to weave the traditional clothes for both bride & groom, as well as their best wo/man.

Elephant fun fact update:

  • Baby Wan Mai is getting HUGE...think two of Lebron James. He's also taking out some of his playfulness on our Mahout, Chewy Dee, by attempting to use him as a ladder. It's a sign of dominance as much as it is play, so Dee better watch out!

This is what food prep will look like for the feast!
