The Cong are an indigenous people of about 1,300 living in Vietnam.

They speak a Tibeto-Burman[?] language. The community is divided into several different clans, or lineages, each with its own taboos and customs for ancestor worship. Their primary occupation is slash and burn agriculture, though they also produce a variety of handicrafts, most notably rattan baskets and mats.
