Episode 70: The Hill Tribes of Vietnam and Laos



Today is the first day of a new month, Canada’s 152nd birthday, and the third anniversary of the podcast!  So naturally we have a special episode for today.  This time, instead of the usual historical narrative, we will meet the hill tribes of Vietnam and Laos, also called the Degar or Montagnards.  There are 54 ethnic groups in Vietnam, and 160 in Laos, but most of the time we only hear from the dominant majorities, the Vietnamese and the Lao.  Therefore this episode will give equal time to the other groups.
