NDO – Having a great passion and profound understanding of the traditional culture of ethnic groups in the Central Highlands region, researcher Dang Trong Ho is one of only a few researchers to be selected for the building of a curriculum on teaching the K’Ho and Ma ethnic languages to public servants working in Lam Dong province. Over previous years, he has also authored many valuable research publications on the topic.
Question: People say it is important to fully identify which values we need to preserve and hand down in order to effectively safeguard and promote the traditional cultural heritages of ethnic minority groups in the Central Highlands. Can you tell us how we can identity a culture?
In my opinion, research aiming to safeguard and uphold traditional cultural values must be carried out with reference to the current socio-economic situation. Second, scientists should increase their participation in bringing research outcomes into social life. Third, we should avoid implementing projects that lack scientific foundation. Fourth, preservation must be integrated with the promotion of traditional cultural values in order to facilitate socio-economic development. Last but not least, state agencies should only play the role of orienting, managing and mobilising resources for the implementation of researches on traditional values, rather than making interventions on the professional content of the research.
