Dynamics of Memory and Religious Nationalism in a Sino-Vietnamese Border Town

Tam T. Ngo

 

This paper analyses the dynamics of official and unofficial religious nationalism in the Vietnamese border town Lào Cai. In 1979 Lào Cai was one of many Vietnamese towns that were reduced to rubble during the short but bloody war between Vietnam and China. The normalization in Sino-Vietnamese relation in 1991 allowed a booming border trade that let Lào Cai prosper while the painful memory of this war continued to haunt the town and the daily experiences of its residents, both humans and gods. Since any official remembrance of the war is forbidden by the Vietnamese state, Lào Cai residents have found a religious way to deal with their war memories that skillfully evades state control.  By analyzing narratives about the fate of the gods and goddesses that reign in the Father-God Temple and the Mother-GoddessTemple, two religious institutions located right next to the border, this paper shows that it is in the symbolism of the supernatural that one can find memories of the war and of the changing social landscape of Lào Cai and reconstruct its history.

Lost in the Mountains

Peter van der Veer

 

This paper engages the question of the relation between civilization, political formation, and mountain people in the Southeast Asian mainland massif. The argument I want to present is that the fragmentary nature of state formation in the area does not allow us to capture it in a model of state versus nonstate actors. Nevertheless, political formations and connections of trade take precedence over civilizational expansion. However, the fragmentary nature of social life in the mountains makes the use of general models difficult.
