AsemconnectVietnam - Vietnam has added six more cultural icons to the list of national intangible cultural heritages under a recent decision by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
The additional heritages include a forest worshiping ceremony of the Phu La ethnic minority in the northern mountain province of Ha Giang’s Xin Man district; the Nang Hai Festival or Moon Festival of the ethnic Tay Ngan in Ha Giang province’s Bac Quang district; the Thanh Liet Temple Festival in the central province of Nghe An’s Hung Nguyen district; the Thuong Liet Village Festival in the northern province of Thai Binh’s Dong Hung district; the Doc Cuoc Temple Festival in the central province of Thanh Hoa’s Sam Son town; and the Tho Vuc Temple Festival in the northern province of Tuyen Quang’s Son Duong district.
The six intangible cultural heritages recognised this time belong to two categories of social religious customs and traditional festivals.
In the decision, the culture ministry assigned the authorities at all levels in localities where intangible cultural heritages are located to be responsible for management of the heritages within the scope of their duties and in accordance with the law and regulations on cultural heritages.
