Photo exhibition on Pa Then ethnic group held at museum (December 21, 2006)


Ha Noi (VNA) - A photo exhibition on Pa Then ethnic group recently took place at the Viet Nam Museum of Ethnology during which visitors were offered chances to meet and talk with real Pa Then girls.

On display at the exhibition were 80 photos on dresses, houses, festivals and customs of Pa Then people, including photos featuring Pa Then girls in traditional dresses in Quang Binh district of Ha Giang province.

Particularly, exhibition-goers were provided with an opportunity to talk to Pa Then girls, who told them stories about the customs and culture of the Pa Then ethnic group, and to see them dance and sing their folksongs.

The Pa Then ethnic group now has a population of more than 4,000, who live in the northern mountainous provinces of Ha Giang and Tuyen Quang. The group has experienced a marked change in its way of living, from wandering to settlement but its cultural identity is facing the threat of dying out.

After the exhibition, the museum plans to issue a book on the life of Pa Then people.-Enditem
