Impacts of Protestantism on Mong Migrants in Dak Lak Province

PHAM VAN DUONG, VU THI HA

Tóm tắt


Protestants account for the majority of the Mong (or H’mong) people migrating from Northern Vietnamese provinces to Dak Lak province in the Central Highlands. Attention has been paid by the State management agencies and researchers to the studies on the religion of Protestantism in general and its practice among the Mong people in particular. Many Mong people have followed the religion because they consider it to be more positive than the ethnic group’s traditional one, which includes many costly rituals and backward customs that are not appropriate to the modern life. Yet, the abandonment of the traditional religion and beliefs to follow a new one, besides positive impacts, entails also negative ones.
