LÀO CAI – A class on traditional culture of the Bố Y ethnic minority group in the northern province of Lào Cai will be held in the locality from May 11 to 13.
Eighty teenagers from the province’s Mường Khương District will be trained by elderly artisans from the local community on how to play the group’s folk games.
The class has been organised by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in co-operation with the provincial department of culture, following the government’s project to preserve and develop the traditional ethnic cultures by 2020.
The results of the class will be reviewed ahead of preparations for the next class on intangible heritage of other groups in the country. – VNS
