This volume describes the diversity of lifestyles and cultures of the mountain peoples. Untouched by commercial development and modern attitudes for decades, most of the tribesmen sustain their traditions. Their natural surroundings are occupied by spirits and genies. Village and house construction, agricultural activities, weddings, child births, sickness, death and many more everyday situations are influenced by spiritual beliefs. This first volume introduces the ethnography and the classification of the hill tribe groups in Vietnam and presents a general overview of the habitation, social structure, government policy, education, health care, swidden farming, opium cultivation, religion and traditional customs. 254 illustrations accompany the text.
