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. However, when the French created the Federal Government Commissariat for the Montagnard people in southern Indochina on May 27, 1946, they excluded our coastal region.

The boundaries of our territories were as follows:

To the north, bounded by the 17th parallel.

To the east, bounded by the Annamitic Ridge (Chaine Annamitique).

To the south, bordered by Cochin China's borders.

To the west, bounded by the Laotian and Cambodian borders.

The French government thus gave these lands to the Chams and Vietnamese peoples which historically had never belonged them.
