members of the UN Indigenous Youth Caucus

The Khmer Krom, the indigenous peoples of the Mekong Delta who live in Viet Nam, are trying to preserve their heritage while advancing their culture.

They are one of the many groups that came to the United Nations to participate in the Eleventh Session of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues.

The UN says there are more than 370 million indigenous people in about 90 countries worldwide.

Intreabud Ricky Tran, a youth coordinator with the Khmer Krom Federation says his group is trying to make Vietnam more sensitive to indigenous peoples issues.

Julie Walker spoke with Mr. Tran about the forum and his people.
