(QNO) - Since the issuance of Resolution No.12 on preserving and promoting the cultural values of Nam Tra My's ethnic groups, the locality has carried out various activities to preserve indigenous culture, which serve the development of the ginseng region's tourism.
The new rice celebration festival of the Xo Dang ethnic group is held in Tra Cang commune.

The resolution aims to research, restore, preserve traditional festivals of ethnic minorities, revive the craft of brocade weaving and basketry in local villages.

All communes are supported with drums, gongs, costumes, and jewelry to facilitate traditional cultural activities locally. Ethnic minority boarding school students, high school students, and elementary and middle school students wear traditional costumes on festive occasions.

Since 2023, intangible cultural heritage conservation (gong playing) for Ca Dong, Xe Dang, and Mo Nong ethnic minorities has begun. Club members in villages and community groups participate in classes led by district artisans.
