Located in "Mushroom Village" at junction of Guangxi and Guizhou, women dress openly and ask for a man.
I, who live in north, have always longed for scenery of Guizhou and Jiangsu. Firstly, because landscapes are more beautiful there, and secondly, because buildings in these areas have been preserved. antiquity, local folk customs and folk customs are what you will encounter when you enter Guizhou area.
When you were young, everyone should have memorized a text called "The scenery of Guilin is best in world. When you mention scenery of Guizhou, first thing you think is Guilin or Nanning. , but apart these things that everyone is familiar with, besides scenic spots, there are also scenery, and more beautiful small scenic spots are hidden.
Small scenic spots have several advantages. First, fewer people go there. The reason for low flow of people here is not that place is not beautiful and scenery is not beautiful, but that popularity has not spread. and we can enjoy joy of travel to greatest extent.
Secondly, this place has not been commercialized. We can feel beauty of landscape most intuitively. Of course, there is such a little-known little scenic spot near Guangxi and Guizhou.
1. The special principle of "matrilineal society"
This place is called "Mushroom Village". It is special in that it not only retains old customs and customs, but also represents a relatively peaceful matriarchal society. You should be familiar with term "matriarchal society". Because modern research shows that we are descended from monkeys, in early stages of human existence we were dominated by our mothers.
But now, with development of time, power of men has become more visible, so it has become a bit like a "patrilineal society", but in this village it still retains in principle original matrilineal respect.
Among them, their principles are mainly manifested in two aspects. The first is that in terms of love, girls can safely court men. It's not that girls don't have right to choose love, or after marriage girls are mostly housewives where girls can take lead in family relationships.
So when we travel around area, we can see that local girls are more open and they can take initiative to ask after they see the guy they like.
If you find yourself in this situation, don't be alarmed because it's a local custom and we'll do our best to understand it.
However, with speed of development of modern society, matrilineal structure of society of this "mushroom village" has not always changed, but compared to other parts of our country, degree of preservation here is still most complete, if possible, you should go to experience local customs and habits.
Secondly, house has a special structure
In most regions of our country, walls of ordinary houses are made of bricks. Our foundation is close to ground. However, in Gulei Village, stilt houses or stilt houses are mainly used for housing construction. Of course, this type of housing construction is also associated with rainy weather in Guizhou.
There is too much precipitation in summer. If house we built is close to ground, prolonged contact with puddles of water can shorten life of house, so they used several bamboo poles to support house. house. In this way, house can avoid direct contact with ground to increase life of house.
Third, culture of clothing is inherited by word of mouth
There is also a special ethnic group here called Baiku Yao, this ethnic group has a very different way of life from other people.
For example, men of this ethnic group wear white knee-length trousers and a floral cardigan. It is because of this habit of dressing that they have their own special name, called Baiku Yao, and culture here is not transmitted through words, but is transmitted from one person to another. This linguistic result is a cultural heritage.
China is a large country with 56 ethnic groups. Differences inevitably exist between different ethnic groups. We must remain respectful and understanding in face of these differences. The attitude, and patience to study a culture worth studying, to achieve self-improvement and live in peace and friendship with other nations. In this way, we can better realize our concept of family of all ethnic groups and narrow relationship between different ethnic groups, which will contribute to development and progress of whole country.
