This paper investigates the assembly of the Phu Tai ethnic group in order to settle the transnational ethnic community. This paper proposes theoretical statement differ from Charles F. Keyes’s statement that indicated the separation of ethnic communities in the Mekong Basin after the ethnic groups are merged as members of the nation state. The split of ethnic groups as a citizen of the nation statehas been described by Charles F Keyes as the Heteroglossia. This paper raised the reassembly of the Phu Tai ethnic group as a case study. Ethnography was implemented in research methodology, and data collection was done through the multi-sited method to demonstrate the settlement of transnational ethnic communities beyond the nation stateboundary. The new narratives were used as a tool to reassemble the Phu Tai ethnic communities, and shape ethnic consciousness in order to create connection among the Phu Tai ethnic communities until they were able to settle their transnational ethnic communities.
