The Vietnam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism in Hanoi is buzzing with activities to promote ethnic cultural values. The activities aim to celebrate Vietnam Ethnic Groups’ Culture Day on April 19th.

Many patriarchs, artisans and people from ethnic minority groups across the country are flocking to the village to participate in the event.

During the past seven years, the celebration has attracted more and more visitors to the village, helping promote the diverse cultural values of ethnic groups in Vietnam.

There still remain challenges in preserving their culture as some youngsters may turn their back on their communities’ traditional values. Authorities have to come up with appropriate policies to sustain the diversity of Vietnam’s ethnic culture.

The exhibitions and performances themed “Mountainous melodies” within the frame work of the celebration are taking place at the village until April 23.-VNA
