Kuy traditional religions also known as “Khamen-Boran, Kui, Kuy, Kuay, Kuoy, Soai, Soei, Suay, Suei, Sui, and Suoi” Holma, Sarah-Kim


Kuy is an ethnonym used for people who speak the Kuy language, which is from the Katuic group of the Austroasiatic family. The Kuy are known by different names across Thailand, Laos and Cambodia. Note that today there is ambiguity regarding how Kuy self-identify, which makes it difficult to define or measure their cultural practices with complete accuracy. The following map includes areas where traditional Kuy communities live.
