The Co Tu ethnic people of Quang Nam Province are now harvesting their golden rice fields.

The local Co Tu people have a long-standing tradition of growing rice.

In Autumn, local girls use their hands to pluck paddy grains directly off the crop ears and then put them into their papooses or they cut down the ears and then arrange them into piles. After that, the men use wood bars to separate rice grains from the ears.

After that the rice of the early crop is cooked and then displayed at the village yard for worshiping. Village patriarchs pray for local prosperity and peace.
