Changes in Worship Rituals of the Ede People in Buon Ma Thuot – Viet Nam Highland Today

Mai Trong An Vinh


Considered as "local residents" in Buon Ma Thuot, the Ede people have a long history and culture in this land. In the process of community development, Ede people also have had a cultural exchange intertwined with the Kinh people and other ethnic groups (Tay, Nung, Gia Rai people...), creating a unique cultural interference between the Ede people and other ethnic groups in the region that makes Ede people’s culture increasingly diverse and rich. This process of contact and cultural exchange has made the socio-economic development of the Ede people in Buon Ma Thuot happen more and more quickly; besides, there is a significant impact on the Ede people’s cultural identity. This article focuses on the changes of the Ede people’s worship rituals in Buon Ma Thuot in the context of international economic integration today.
