The site sprang from a boat dock in Nu village in Ia Khai commune to several boat docks along the Po Ko River.

During the period 1961-1965 of the national resistance war, local people used to ferry soldiers and supplies by dug-out canoes from these boat docks across the river.

At the event

Among those boatmen, Puih San or also called A Sanh, a native of the Jrai ethnic minority group in Nu village, was an outstanding contributor. He joined the military in 1961 and was assigned to a fleet of canoes in his hometown to carry men and materials to the front line.

Notably, A Sanh and his comrades recorded over 30 trips a night with absolute safety, contributing to the final victory. He was then awarded with the “Hero of the People’s Armed Forces” title.
