The Dong communities can be found in the southern China provinces of Guizhou, Hunan and in the Guangxi autonomous region. The spoken language of the Dong is in the same phonetic family as that of the Tai/ Dai language. The Dong people's beliefs remain original, believing all things have spirits and gods - of land, water, ox, and the spirit of ancestors, etc. The Dong are well renowned for the elaborate structural design of their Wind and Rain Bridge, and Drum Tower.
