The Degar

110 words 0 Comments

The Degar, also known as Montagnard, are the indigenous peoples of the Central Highlands of Vietnam. The term Montagnard means “people of the mountain”. The Vietnamese used to call all forest and mountain people “Mi” or “Moi,” a derogatory term that means “savages.” For a long time the French also describe them with a similar derogatory term “les Mois” and only started calling them Montagnards after they had been in Vietnam for some time. Today the Montagnards are proud of their own dialects, their own writing systems and their own schools.                                       Резултат с изображение за the degar
