Handicraft Learning of the Local Bunong People

Description

During this Cambodia art workshop, we will learn about all the different handicrafts of the Bunong people in Cambodia.

First, you will meet with Kwet, the blacksmith, who will explain his know-how and demonstrate for you how he uses his forge. Plan Segn or Kaorem, the basketmaker, will show you the raw materials (rattan and bamboo from the forest) and how they make traditional baskets with them. You will also learn how to make a coaster for yourself.

After we eat a traditional lunch in a Bunong house, we will invite you to visit our medicinal plant garden, where we will show you all the different plants from the forest and how they treat different diseases. You will also get to know about the various wild vegetables we eat.

Finally, Pany, Chanty, or Maly, who are all traditional weavers, will demonstrate their weaving technique, and you will see our traditional Bunong scarves and sarongs.

About Me

We are Bunong people living in Dak Dam Village. After help from different organizations, we can now receive you and make you a part of our community! You will join us in our daily activities, and we will show you how we live. We want to provide you with an authentic experience of local people in Cambodia. One of our concerns is that deforestation is undermining our livelihoods as the forest is essential for us, as you will see for yourself. We have three community forestry areas in Dak Dam, which we manage ourselves. Your visit to our community will also contribute to protecting those forest areas, allowing us to patrol and prevent illegal activities regularly. Indeed, 30% of the cost of each tour is going directly to a community box that villagers use for community forest preservation.
