Loeurn Nhoeurn is 43 years old, and lives in La-ern Kren village, O’Chum district, O’Chum district in Ratanakiri province. The Dak is a type of traditional fishtrap unique to Tampuan indigenous people. He learned to make it from his father when he was 10 years old, and used it for fishing to support his family. He doesn’t want his descendants to forget this skill.
My name is Nhoeung Champa, and I’m 17 years old. I am Tampuan, and I live in La-ern Kren village, O’Chhum commune, O’Chhum district in Ratanakiri province.
I decided to make this short documentary film to show the young generation how Dak are made and used.
