Jpeg 57K  0110D36 Girls beating sticky rice as part of a dance programme in Gan He village, Ya Rong township, Huishui county, Guizhou province, south-west China. The people living in this village are known as Qing Miao. There has been much intermarriage between Miao and Bouyei which is evident from the every-day costume of the women. The pieced skirts of applique and wax-resist being worn by the girls were originally only worn at funerals but today they are worn for special festivals and dance competitions. Note the bands of complex weaving on the sleeves of the women's jackets.
