The Minorities in Yunnan, China
 
 
Yunnan is the home to 25 minorities among all 56 in China. Each of the minorities has their own custom, unique language, characters and dressing style.
 
To acquaint with those minority people’s cultures, one of the best ways is to join their colorful, distinguishing festivals. There are more or less 400 festivals and activities happened within the minorities. Some of the festivals are celebrated between certain minorities, with some of the differences depends on the time, style and local legends. To take the “Torch Festival” as an example, besides the most famous minorities of Yi and Bai, the Naxi and Primi minorities will also hold some celebrating events about it; same as the “Water-splashing Festival”, either minority of Dai, Blang or Achang commemorate at the same time, with the same origin.
 
Many of the minorities are good at singing and dancing in general, whenever in the festival days, they all dress up their traditional minority clothes, gathering together then start their songs and dance. Teenagers will take these opportunities to seek out their lovers. Minority people regard the festivals as a get-together party; singing and dancing collectively shows their unity and harmonious relations.
