The last 80-year-old Prince Blang in Yunnan lived in seclusion in a virgin forest in "Land of Eight Hundred Daughters-in-Law."
We are a multiethnic country. Although population of Han nationality is very large, there are many other ethnic groups. National minorities exist mainly in every region of our country, since number of their ethnic groups is small, they are called national minorities.
However, in southern part of our country there is a place where a large number of ethnic minorities gather, including Bai, Wa, Lahu, etc. Most of them live in this place, or in this place. groups, it is difficult to detect their existence elsewhere.
Besides,each ethnic group here has its own customs, although these two ethnic groups live very close, they still have different customs. In addition, houses they built, clothes they made, and their daily habits are very different from ours.
After a long period of development, many ethnic groups have united, and they can live together in harmony. There is also a minority called Blang nationality, and there is a prince in his eighties, let's explore this mysterious nation.
1. A nation with strong folk customs, tea production is very large
This nation has several names in this place, such as Brown, Ava, etc. People living in different places call it differently, and someone likes to call it Brown and some people like to call them Wu.
Most members of this ethnic group live in virgin forests, leading an isolated lifestyle. Since there are many ancient tea trees where they live, tea production is very high.
So, people here collect tea and exchange money with strangers, and then use exchanged money to buy what they need.
Besides, tea in this place sells very well and it is very famous throughout country. However, besides his tea, there is also a story about an 80-year-old prince who is famous all over world.
And here's another story that is said to have happened in Yuan Dynasty, rulers at that time wanted to completely subjugate people living here, so they sent their elite soldiers and generals to this place, but at that time Because they were very unfamiliar with area, they were defeated by Blang people who lived there.
Later people called this battle eight hundred daughters-in-law, which means that king at that time married eight hundred wives, and each of them led clan, relying on such a powerful ethnic group that they defeated a strong external enemy, which is enough to show how strong folk style is here.
2. The story of octogenarian prince
While previous history of this place is lost in long river of history, life must go on. With development of society, leader of this nation led his people out of boundless and deep mountains.
Bring them knowledge and wealth and save them from poverty and disease, and that leader is Prince Su Guowen, who is now deeply respected and loved by people, and whom they call Genting , still >eighty years.
I find that when you hear a prince, first thing you think of is that they need to learn all sorts of knowledge and etiquette, and they are very relaxed and at ease. But this prince lives a different life, his life is very busy, he has to deal with all kinds of things that happen every day, and he also has to consider future direction of his people. strong > strong >.
Because their people have no words to record events, can only use their own language to communicate and communicate, for some of great events that have happened. can only be passed on to each other by patriarchs of each generation. Usually, when they are passed on to next generation, history undergoes some changes.
After he became patriarch, he decided to change current situation, let people learn how to write, change status quo that forbids writing in clan, and allow their stories to be shared. All his life he worked hard to change problems of ethnic group.
In order to change lifestyle of people and make them more adapted to modern way of life, he brought his people out of mountains into a society that is developing at a high speed, allowing them to I learned several languages , and there are no obstacles when communicating with people from outside world.
He also taught his people how to make a living because there are so many ancient tea trees here that people can harvest tea in exchange for high profits to make them richer.
For those who don't want to make a living, he also advises getting out of mountains and learning earning skills to have skills to work in a highly competitive environment. modern society.
It can be said that reason why current people of Blang can live happily in this mountain forest is inseparable from this old leader. Without his foresight, they would have lived happily ever after. He may not live like this, so the locals respect him very much and collectively call him Geng Ding.
