This study uses the qualitative research method to interview key informants in the field and collect a large amount of data, which is then sorted and analyzed. The objective were to: 1) investigate the status of Dong Small Songs. 2) Examine the development of Dong Small songs in educational institutions. There are 2 key informants. The research process includes literature research, field investigation methods, observation methods, interview methods, and a questionnaire method. The study's results are as follows: 1) The Dong ethnicity has a separate language; most of its cultural transmission relies on its big and small songs, which develop and transmit culture. Dong small songs relate to historical events, cultural transmission, character formation, work skill training, and other topics. The Dong people preserve their tradition through Girl's Day, March 3rd, the Bullfighting Festival, and other festivals' dances and music. 2) The Dong people have developed with the times. The transmission of song implementation has expanded to educational institutions. Education has been another important technique for passing along the Dong minority song. Local Dong folk songs have also attracted people from all around the world to appreciate or study them.
