Moi

 

the collective name for a group of highland peoples in South Vietnam that was commonly used among the Vietnamese ruling clique and the colonists prior to the revolution of 1945. The term bore the contemptuous connotation of “savages,” or “ignorant ones.” The term “Moi” designated more than 30 peoples and ethnic groups who spoke Mon-Khmer and Indonesian languages and who were at different stages of social and economic development. The Moi are now known as the Thuong (Montagnards).
