This research aims to explain the influence of the construction of Vietnamese cultural identity in the Vietnam War of Independence between 1946 and 1954. It argues that the construction of cultural identity justified, promoted and legitimized the war of independence as political instrument because –as it is a relational process–, it generated during the French colonization differentiation practices grounded on values, traditions, customs, beliefs and symbols of Vietnamese resistance. This led to a rupture in the prevailing political relations, which led to the search for a new social order based on selfdetermination. A qualitative methodology, based on documentary and historiographical analysis is used.
