The Life of the Lach Ethnic People in 1950s

The valued pictures of the Lach ethnic people who lived in the land of Da Lat today were recorded exactly 60 years ago by the amateur photographer Mr. Le Phi (82 years old, currently residing in Hai Ba Trung Street, Da Lat City).

Mr. Phi said that Lach ethnic people were the first ethnic minority group lived in Dalat – still living in the outskirt of Dalat center today. Every day, they gone hunting, cutting firewood and brought it to Dalat center for selling or exchange the foods.

At that time, the Lach men and Lach have no dressing, it’s normal. They could freely drop their eyes for watching each other’s body.

Every afternoon, the headwater streams of Xuan Huong Lake today were busy in laughter, teasing girls and boys. They took a bath together innocently as the children up 3 without mind that they were naked.

Dalattrip would like to introduce some images about life of the Lach ethnic people in 1950s by photographer Le Phi.
