CHAM … 191

About 87 percent of the population of Vietnam is composed of ethnic Vietnamese. In addition to the ethnic Vietnamese, there are fifty-three other ethnic groups living in Vietnam. Many are nomadic tribal peoples living in mountainous areas. The Cham and the Khmer are remnants of past civilizations that controlled the southern parts of the country. For more information on the Khmer, see the chapter on Cambodia in Volume 2.
