This paper seeks to understand “culture”, its definition, associated theories and most importantly, the notion of change. By using the Akha community in Mehmon village (Northern Thailand) as a case study, the author hopes to seek out areas where culture change has occurred, the effects of such change and most importantly, the reasons for change to occur specifically in tribal societies and in general societies as well.
