Ms. Chat Touch, aged 50, lives in Loan village, Sangkat Yeak Loam, Krong Banlung in Ratanakiri province. She is of the Tampuan indigenous minority and tells about the history of powder soup, a traditional Tampuan food. This soup is made when the community organises ceremonies. She would like the next generation to know about it because there are some among them who do not..
My name is Nhoch Roeun (Miss), I am 20 years old, and of the Tampuan indigenous people, and I live in Loan village, Sangkat Yeak Loam, Krong Banlung in Ratanakiri province. I had an opportunity to attend the training at Bophana Center, “Capacity Building for Indigenous Youth and Indigenous Audiovisual Establishment in Cambodia Through WIKIMEDIA”.
I researched and produced a documentary film on women in my village and their preparation of a traditional kind of soup which is unique to Tampuan culture, and which we call “Powder Soup”. I would like to document this food as an expression of Tampuan identity, a tradition for the younger generation to follow and for a wider public to know about.
