A museum in Ho Chi Minh City is showcasing craft items made by the Cham people in central Vietnam until the end of August in an attempt to promote an ethnic culture that is fading.
The exhibition opened Wednesday at the Southern Women's Museum and will continue until August 30.
The exhibition will feature 29 photographs and 184 items produced by hand in Ninh Thuan Province--the home to Vietnam's largest population of the remaining descendants of the Kingdom of Champa (7th - 18th centuries).
The event also aims to highlight the Cham's matriarchal culture.
Nguyen Thi Tham, director of the museum, told Vietnam News Agency women play a crucial role in their family life and community.
Tham said those women have done a good job preserving and developing Cham culture though the generations.
The museum is located at 202 Vo Thi Sau, District 3, Ho Chi Minh City.
