ABSTRACT
This paper considers changes in the family, especially in the ideology of motherhood and reproduction among the Karen minority ethnic group in the periphery of Thailand as seen through family ritual and birth control and women's choices thereof. It analyses how motherhood and reproductive roles are defined in social and cultural processes, especially ritual, and how women are placed at the centre of ‘tradition’ through these roles. Such processes are discussed in relation to wider social, economic, and political dynamics. The choices women adopt in negotiating and redefining their motherhood under multiple and overlapping forms of domination are also examined.
