vietnam - ethnic minorities
Lo Lo Den or Black Lo Lo woman (Bao Lac market).
The "Lo Lo" ethnic group's population was about 3,200 in 1989, according Vietnam's official survey data.
They reside in Cao-Bang, Ha-Giang and Lao-Cai provinces, largely in the districts of Bao-Lac (Cao-Bang), Dong-Van and Meo-Vac (Ha-Giang), and Muong-Khuong (Lao-Cai). Like some other ethnoses in northern Vietnam, the "Lo-Lo" have had their origin in southern China regions such as Sichuan and Yunnan provinces, who, according to historians and ethnologists, had established the Nam-Chien state by the end of the first millennium.
