In some ancient villages of Tibet, "polyandry" is still practiced, but they get along very harmoniously.
China a country with a vast territory and rich resources. On our majestic 9.6 million square kilometers of land, each of us has very little, only this side of space, and everyone has their own lot, and you can visit and experience every corner of whole country.
Every other culture deserves and allows us to learn and understand, so I think that while living in China, as descendants of Yan Huang, sons and daughters of Hua Xia, we were born in many other countries. also reason why so many other countries in world look forward to and admire China because we have a capital city that we can be proud of and proud of.
We have a vast and boundless earth that has resources for our survival, rich in resources and various species, which also allow each of us to achieve in life >Great economic progress; In arms of this vast motherland, we have countless famous mountains and rivers, rivers and lakes, canyons, plains and hills, valleys and plateaus.
These different characteristics of landforms and landforms not only give us a unique natural landscape, but also give people in different regions a new way of life and new sources of life, and also make our different provinces people in area and between regions can bypass each other to find out reasons and goals of visit.
All of China is enough for us to visit and understand. We have fifty-six ethnic groups, and each ethnic group has its own proud culture and origin, as well as lifestyles, diets, and various other folk customs.
Each nation has its own history, origin, way of gathering, etc. Some of them changed and merged, and some very ancient ways of life and customs have been well preserved to this day. It has become our rare cultural heritage and heritage.
Let's talk today about this very distinctive region, nation and unique culture that will surely open your eyes.
This territory is Tibet Autonomous Region of my country. For Tibet, it became independent in late founding of New China. Previously, people knew little about Tibet, including in history of our country, because Tibet is located in border zone, in southwest< Location /strong> is not only far from Central Plains of our country.
In addition, Tibet itself has a great latitude and an average altitude of more than 4000 meters above sea level, which creates harsh living conditions there. All these reasons combined make people know little about Tibet, and in Tibet in New China after its creation and making it independent and under jurisdiction of central government, people began to understand this mysterious region of Tibet.
Having understood this, people fell in love with this mysterious place as if they had discovered a miracle for themselves.
Tibet is an inland area where plateaus, high altitude and rarefied air pose a huge problem for locals and livestock, which is why it is also called nearest place to sky . strong>, and people who live there are also considered quite mysterious to us.
They believe in religion, they pray sincerely, even yaks, Tibetan mastiffs and vultures take pride in holy land, and scenery there is even harder to see in these other areas of ours.
Only when you actually arrive in Tibet do you seem to really know what is blue, what is high mountain, and what is white snow. If you don't go to Tibet in your lifetime, it will be a loss.
A mysterious place in Tibet is much more than that. We know very little about local marriage customs in Tibet. Most of us know that ancient China was a feudal era in which men outnumbered women. At that time, the status of women was low, and they did not have autonomy in marriage.
What's more, ancient China was also a country that practiced polygamy, but in Tibet, this custom seems a bit contrary to tradition. In such an area of Tibet, polyandry is still practiced today. Yes, you read that right, polyandry.
This is incomprehensible in eyes of many modern Chinese, because in principle there has never been such a story, but only in some remote mountain villages in Tibet. for a matriarchal society in early days.
Matrilineal society is not a new word, it has existed all over world, and in these areas of Tibet, this tradition has been preserved, some of them are monogamous brothers, some are even monogamous father and son, and many netizens will be curious what night culture is behind this tradition.
After all, we have seen too many court dramas that are arranged by special departments for rulers, and in these parts of Tibet there is no such situation. The wife chooses which room her husband will stay in, Just hang shoes by door, and everyone will know.
Actually, system of polyandry has survived to present day. In addition to maintaining traditional respect for a matrilineal society, a large part of reasons are also caused by poverty. families, but marriage and having children cost money after all, and in Tibet, in some areas with underdeveloped economic conditions, a method has been devised to save money and at same time improve harmony between families.
