Trinkets from Bác Hồ

Always on the lookout for the anthro connection, so this hit high on my trigger warning system:

A gift from Uncle Ho to “Vuong Chi Sinh, a leader of the Mong ethnic people in Ha Giang” in recognition of his commitment to the revolution.

I don’t know how yet, but this will enter my discussion of anthropology and ethics in Vietnam (highlands Special Forces activity etc).

Great stuff – also, the Ho Chi Minh Museum is a great educational resource and well worth a visit. It used to be the Saigon Port Building.
