This is a mountain tribe who live in Lai Chau Province – Vietnam. The area is quite remote, I had to travel pretty far to get to the village. The people here call themself Lao ethnic. Their traditional dress is mostly black. And what i’m impressed most is that the people here dyed their teeth black. They said that it is a remedy to protect their teeth. That create by some herbal which they collected in the forest.
It’s said that the younger people now want to live a modern live and most of them do not practice this kind of tradtion. So mostly, the young people here don’t have black teeth. So I guess in the near future, the traditional practice will be disappeared. If you want to film the group, you should come here soon.
And if you are looking for someone to help with Location Scouting in Vietnam, please let me know. As a Film Fixer in Vietnam, I provide location scouting Service in Vietnam to help you scout the areas in advance with all my professional equipment. And I am also a Drone Operator in Vietnam.
