Is Vietnam´s central highlands successfully Vietnamized?
« on: August 02, 2017, 07:48:06 AM »
About 2 decades ago the central highlands area have only ethnic minorities, of which there are MANY who still live there.  During VNCH times, the ethnic minorities living there were hostile to our soldiers, and it was only during the final years of the Republic of Vietnam (and they know the commies would be 10x more aggressive) that they they started to collaborate with our troops.  This flycam from 2016 shows no trace of them, and Pleiku is super urbanized now.


Below is a list of officially recognized ethnic groups in Vietnam that are indigenous to the Central Highlands and nearby areas. They speak Austroasiatic languages of the Katuic and Bahnaric, as well as Chamic languages (which belong to the Austronesian language family). Population statistics are from the 2009 Vietnam Population Census.

Katuic speakers
Bru (2009 population: 74,506): Quảng Trị Province
Cơ Tu (2009 population: 61,588): Quảng Nam Province
Tà Ôi (2009 population: 43,886): Thừa Thiên-Huế Province and Quảng Trị Province
Bahnaric speakers
West Bahnaric
Brâu (2009 population: 397): Kon Tum Province
East Bahnaric
Co (2009 population: 33,817): Quảng Ngãi Province
North Bahnaric
Xơ Đăng (2009 population: 169,501): Kon Tum Province and Quảng Nam Province
Hrê (2009 population: 127,420): Quảng Ngãi Province
Rơ Măm (2009 population: 436): Kon Tum Province
Central Bahnaric
Ba Na (2009 population: 227,716): Gia Lai Province and Kon Tum Province
Giẻ Triêng (2009 population: 50,962): Kon Tum Province and Quảng Nam Province
South Bahnaric
Chơ Ro (2009 population: 26,855): Đồng Nai Province
Cờ Ho (2009 population: 166,112): Lâm Đồng Province
Mạ (2009 population: 41,405): Lâm Đồng Province
X’Tiêng (2009 population: 85,436): Bình Phước Province
Mnông (2009 population: 102,741): Đắk Lắk Province and Đắk Nông Province
Chamic speakers
Chăm (2009 population: 161,729): Ninh Thuận Province and Bình Thuận Province
Chu Ru (2009 population: 19,314): Lâm Đồng Province
Ê Đê (2009 population: 331,194): Đắk Lắk Province
Gia Rai (2009 population: 411,275): Gia Lai Province
Ra Glai (2009 population: 122,245): Ninh Thuận Province and Khánh Hòa Province

There are at least a few millions ethnic minorities still live in the central highlands.  Only 85% of the nearly 90 million citizens in Vietnam are ethnic Kinh so that leaves nearly 13 million strong ethnic minorities who live throughout the country.

The weather in the central highlands is pretty nice also far from the reach of government so I guess there is a lot of life to life autonomy.

I think so. Ethnic minority folks in Central Highlands said to me in Vietnamese that the region was only incorporated into Vietnam in 1954.
