After a large fire that burned down most of the houses in Truc Son, a majority of Dao people moved down to Nam Dam valley to settle down, taking advantage of favorable nature and water resources in this valley for farming and living; a part of Dao people continued to stay in Truc Son to rebuild their homes and lives. Since then, the Dao communities in two villages are united to create intimate relationships as brothers.
