On Sunday April 6th 2014, members of the Khmers Kampuchea-Krom Federation (KKF) participated in the Annual Khmer New Year Celebration in Long Beach, California, USA.
Cladded in the colors of Khmer-Krom flag of red, blue and yellow, the procession was led by a group of Cha Yum performers dancing to the rhythm of the drums.

Once, very far away and very long ago, a powerful king from the West met a wise monk from the East. To test the monk's wisdom, the king posed many difficult questions: Why do good people sometimes suffer while evil people sometimes prosper? How can we know what truth is? How can there be rebirth without an eternal soul ? He asked many such questions. To each, the monk answered with brilliance and serenity. After their talk, the king left his throne and joined the monk in teaching the Middle Way.

The classic "Vietnamese think Khmer Krom as Khmer, and Cambodian think Khmer Krom as Vietnamese" scenario arose when Truong Thi May became the runner up of the Miss Viet Ethnic 2007. Some Vietnamese newspapers have tried to discredit her by claiming that she's of Kinh's ethic (majority ethnic of Vietnam). Some Khmer on the other hand believe she's a Vietnamese. Khmer Krom have always been facing discrimination by both the Cambodian and the Vietnamese population.
The Khmer Krom Dragons from Seattle have once again proven that they rule the waters as they compete against other teams from Seattle-Tacoma and surrounding areas on Saturday August 16, 2008.
Consisting of two teams, the juniors and the senior, both of the Khmer Krom Dragons took gold home.
Congratulations to the teams for their amazing effort!

Is Vietnam finally seeing the true colour of the rich and vibrant culture of the Khmers in Kampuchea-Krom? Maybe it's about time Vietnam gives the Khmer Krom people recognition as the indigenous peoples epecially since all temples are living proof of their ancestral and historic roots to the Mekong Delta.
The Mekong Delta is home to an array of distinctive Khmer pagodas off the beaten track.
