Abstract


Dao people in Vietnam mostly reside in the highlands of Cao Bang, Bac Kan, Thai Nguyen, Ha Giang, Tuyen Quang, Yen Bai, Lao Cai, Lai Chau, Son La, Dien Bien, Quang Ninh, Hoa Binh... Only after the 1990s, a part of the Dao people migrated to the South, residing in the provinces of the Central Highlands and the Southeast have the conditions to cultivate in the highlands, with relatively flat terrain. However, there are many traces showing that the culture of many Dao groups is related to the river culture. In the scope of this article, the author gives some evidence related to river culture in the spiritual life of the Dao people in Vietnam. This is the result of fieldwork, research, collection and collation of sources for about 15 years. This is also the first publication of the evidence related to river culture in the life of the Dao people in Vietnam.
