Nam Tra My District Boarding School for Ethnic Minorities has more than 300 students from Ca Dong, Xo Dang, Bo Nong and Kor ethnic minority groups. Most of the children have the surname of Ho. According to researchers, ethnic minorities in Truong Son have had the Ho family name since the August Revolution. This is also a way to remember with great gratitude that Uncle Ho sacrificed for the country and the people.

In Tay Giang border district, Quang Nam province, where the Co Tu ethnic group lives mainly, few people met Uncle Ho. Mr. Bling Bay is one of the prestigious people who visited Uncle Ho's mausoleum 10 years ago. For people in the border areas like Mr. Bay, even though they lead difficult lives, every family reserves the most solemn space of the house to worship Uncle Ho. On holidays or New Year festival, people burn incense to commemorate and remember Uncle Ho's gratitude for the people and the country.

Many highland village elders believe that Uncle Ho not only brought independence and freedom to the nation, but also that Uncle Ho's teachings have tightened the solidarity between brotherly peoples. It is that solidarity that creates the strength of the entire nation. Not only do ethnic minorities in the highlands of Quang Nam have the Ho family name, tens of thousands of Pa Ko - Van Kieu people in Quang Tri and Thua Thien Hue, and the Hre people in Quang Ngai, also voluntarily have the Ho family name.

As descendants of Uncle Ho, learning from Uncle Ho's example, ethnic minorities have taken care of business, boosted economic development, and gradually reduced poor households. People's lives have many changes, but one thing never changes, which is the heart and deep affection of millions of ethnic people in the great family of Vietnamese peoples for Uncle Ho./.
