Who are Dega

The Dega race was the first people to inhabit this region and we are the rightful owners of the land that the world knew as the Central Highlands of Vietnam during the Second Indochina War.

Dega Population

The Dega population was once estimated at between 3 and 3.5 million during French colonialism. Today, our race has shrunk to just a few hundred thousand survivors.

Dega Territories

Before the Chams and Annam peoples invaded our coastal lands, our people in Southeast Asia were basically free to live in our peaceful village communities.
