Transcript:

This is a Montagnard village?

That's the resettlement village in Ah Khe, and I was there with the Red Cross Welfare Team. And I was negotiating with one of the old Montagnard - I don't think he was a chief but he was one of the seniors of the village - and he was trying to sell me his bow and arrow outfit.

Did you buy it?

Oh it was probably made specially for selling to the tourists [laughs].

So you didn't buy it?

No I got it.
