Two religious practices in Ha Giang named national heritage

The post-harvest ritual of the Co Lao ethnic group and the Ban Vuong worshipping ceremony of the Red Dao ethnic people in the northern province of Ha Giang have been listed as two national intangible cultural heritages, announced the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism on April 7.

The post-harvest ritual is held annually by the Co Lao ethnic community in Tung San commune, Hoang Su Phi district to celebrate a bountiful harvest. Families often prepare boiled chicken and pork, and homemade agricultural products such as sticky rice, wine, and fruits as offerings to express gratitude to gods and ancestors.
