The Yao, a non-Han minority moved from the Yang Tse basin centuries ago to south of China before migrating some seven to eight centuries ago to Northern Vietnam, Laos and Thailand in small groups. Some 10 centuries ago they also became Taoists and its hierarchy of numerous gods and saints, illustrated in their magnificent paintings, helped them survive as a society based on 12 clans with strong traditions, with no country of its own, and no greater administrative and social borders than the village. Their distinctive dress and exquisite silver jewellery also helped to define the various sub-groups to which they belonged. This book covers all aspects of Yao culture based on 12 years fieldwork and research in the region.
