HA GIANG — The second Mông (H’mông) Ethnic Cultural Festival will be held in Đồng Văn District in the northern province of Hà Giang in early October.
The event themed “Preserving and promoting cultural identity of Mông People in the country’s renewal, integration and development period” will have activities related to the ethnic Mông such as a pan-pipe festival, a traditional costume display, folk song performances, cuisine, and native products.
Seventeen provinces nationwide with a large number of Mông will also participate in the festival.
Việt Nam has about 800,000 Mông people, one of the country’s ethnic minorities with a large population. Most Mông live in mountainous areas at a height of 700 metres to 1,500 metres above sea level in the north, north-central and Central Highlands regions. — VNS
