the inception of Viettouch in 1996, our website has been undergoing
a tremendous amount of growth spurt that leads to its current
status. We're currently renovating our entire site with generous
and valuable contributions from those individuals whose names
appear along side this editorial note. We're quite excited to
have two newly christened pages: Hue
2002 and Music under
the editorial direction of Tuyet A. Tran. Although both pages
are under construction, we're delighted to present the materials
as they roll off the press, sort to speak.
Nam is a multidimensional society with 54 ethnic groups embodying
vast cultural, language and musical diversities. True to nature,
our entire group couldn't be more diversely passionate and dynamic
as far as our backgrounds, philosophical values and approaches.
The wonderful common link is that we're all proud of our heritage
in our own ways. We're in a unique position as Vietnamese diaspora
which helps to further diversify our perspectives on presenting
the multifaceted Viet Nam. Our multiculturally influenced views
couple with the affection for our heritage have created an exciting
and challenging foundation for the Viettouch team and its modus
enthusiastic about our project whose collaborations span thousands
of miles, across countries and national boundaries with the help
of technology. We hope you will enjoy your visit to our ever expanding
you for your interest and visit.
