Color Vietnam Montagnard Hunter Central Highlands

Comments:  The indigenous people of the Central Highlands of Vietnam are known as Montagnard's meaning mountian people. Ban Me Thout is there capital. This photo is of a Montagnard hunter preparing for the daily hunt. The Vietnamese dislike the Montagnards and regard them as savages (moi). There are many tribes in the highlands of Vietnam and US Military Personnel especially Green Berets sought initiation for membership in a tribe. The author was initiated into two tribes near Pleiku.
