Kim Mun in Vietnam

"My daughter is a 72-ounce silver girl, not a 12-ounce one!" According to tradition, a Kim Mun young man has to pay a price in silver to his bride's parents to obtain her release. A young woman's price was based on her beauty and health. Another unusual Kim Mun custom was that a girl would bite the arm of her boyfriend to show her interest in him. The Kim Mun are an indigenous people who live in villages in forested areas of Vietnam near the Chinese border. Almost all Kim Mun practice folk religion and veneration of their ancestors.
