Hoa has been recognised by the Vietnam Federation of UNESCO Associations and the UNESCO Association for Conservation of Vietnamese Ethnic Culture.

 

As well as regularly worshipping and burning incense at the temple, Hoa also teaches and conserves the art of Chau Van singing and dancing as part of worshipping rituals to younger generations.

 

In May this year, she won a national Chau Van ritual competition organised by the Vietnam Federation of UNESCO Associations.

 

On the occasion, the federation awarded memberships to five individuals working for the UNESCO Vietnam representative office in the central region for their contributions to the preservation of ethnic culture.
