VIETNAM #178

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
This lady is 111 years according her family. She was born around 1902, when there were no written records of people born in remote villages in the middle of the jungle.

She is the last Chau Ma hill tribe living person of her generation in the Loc Tan area. She does not speak Vietnamese. She only speaks the language of her tribe. Members of her family translated what she was saying into Vietnamese and my friend told me in English what she said.
