Live with the Mountain

In Maolan Karst forest, Libo County, Guizhou Province, there are several ethnic minority groups managed to preserve with their own lifestyle. Without much resources, people there learnt to live with the nature. The Buoyei collects woad leaves for decay and extract indigo dye to make clothes. Another group, the Baiku Yao, highly respects the maternity. Women there still wear “two pieces Yao” to express the love towards mother. Lastly, the Yao practiced cave burial as they believed that the good ventilation in the cave allows the dead body to decompose and disappear in a natural way. Those who are born in the mountain will find their final resting place in the mountain.
