The Lanna people today don't call themselves "khon Lao" because they are not the citizens of the Lao PDR. However, the people of Lanna are ethnically and historically related to the Lao (not including the Lao Theuang or Lao Soung).

The people of Lanna consisted of many Tai related ethnic groups, examples are Tai Yuan, Tai Lue, Tai Yai and so on. The term "Khon Muang" is too general to refer to the population of Lanna. It is actually a new term that the Central Thais call the Northern people. Just like they call the North Easterner "Isaan" 

Some certain groups of people in Northern Thailand still speak their native dialect, which is similar to either Vientiane or Luang Prabang dialect.

I think you should stop relating Lao to those Lanna or even Issan people because they don’t want to be related with us anyway. 

 

There is a Lao proverb stated that: “when you are poor even your aunt doesn’t want to know who you are”

You can relate Lao to Isaan and Lanna people in terms of culture, but not politically.

It's shown that you know notthing about Lanna. You don't even know how they speak you just assume that they speak Lao.

Tai Dum in Northern Thai speak lao but Lanna speak Kham Mueang which Most linguists consider Northern Thai to be more closely related to Thai and the other Chiang Saeng languages than to Lao and the Lao-Phutai languages, but the distinction is never easy to make, as the languages form a continuum with few sharp dividing lines.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_Thai_language

Actually Lanna knows that they were once part of Lan Xang kingdom. but after more than 200 years under Burmese and Lao done notthing but abandon them and then another more than 200 years under Siam and Lao done notthing apart from calling them Lao do you thing Lao deserve to call Lanna Lao? If I were Lao I would be ashamed to do just that.

You know what maybe Lanna doesn't want to be called Lao for the same reason Lao doesn't want to be called Thai or Siam. Not because of Lao is a poorer country or anything.

You neither. So how the hell did you know that Lao did do somethings for Lanna?

If you can't say somethings smart just say nothing at all.

Don't leave your root, khon Mueng is also Tai-Lao. And Khon Lanna is not Khon Siam. What about sticky rice? Any Thai Siam eat Khaw neaw? But Xiangmai, Xiangrai, Lampang, Phrae, Nan, Lamphun, Maehongson, Uttaradith and some Part of Tak + Sukhothai do.

These are Lanna or Tuamueng Alphabet. So so far similar to Thai Siam Alphabet but so so close to Lao Alphabet. Wake up and find out the fact who you are!

I agree with you here, why we can’t just enjoy the photos.

 

I don’t understand why some Lao (Americans) try so so hard to rerate Lao people to those Lana and Issan people. We learned the history and it is the past now. I live happily in Laos, and I don’t see the need to be related to anyone to make us stand tall.

The Northern dialect is more closely related to Lao than it is Central Thai. These days however, the influence of Bangkok has somewhat obscured this fact with the introduction of a lot of Central thai words. A Northern Thai can understand Lao relatively well yet a Central THai cannot understand eithER Northern or Lao dialects unless the conversation is sprinkled with Central Thai words.

Don't own everything belong to yours!

Lanna is more close to Burma than Laos. Lanna language is similar to Burmese language.

Lanna culture is even close to Mon and Myanmar.

Lanna and Burma have several things in common such as language, traditional clothes.

 

Burma language

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burmese_language

http://www.guideformyanmar.com/language.html

Lanna language

http://scriptsource.org/cms/scripts/page.php?item_id=language_detail_use&key=nod

 

Even Northern Thai people said that their culture and language are similar to Myanmar.

I don't understand why you Laos have to say this is ours that is ours. I accept that Laos and Lanna got quite similar cultures, but less than Myanmar. So sick of someone here that loves to stick in the part and not move on. no
