Vietnamese People
The Vietnamese people
Vietnamese people
or the Kinh people (Vietnamese: người Việt or người Kinh), are an ethnic group originating from present-day northern Vietnam. They are the majority ethnic group of Vietnam, comprising 86% of the population at the 1999 census, and are officially known as Kinh to distinguish them from other ethnic groups in Vietnam.

The word Việt is shortened from Bách Việt, a name used in ancient times
