The depths of the southeastern Guizhou Province mountains are inhabited by a branch of the Miao ethnic group known as the “Short-skirt” Miao (Mini-Skirt Hmong) . They number 50,000 to 60,000. Some live in Langdong, Kongshen, and Konglie villages of Rongjiang County, while others may be found living in the Datang area of Leishan County, and Paidiao area of Danzhai County, etc.

Their clothing is distinct and colorful for both casual and holiday wear, which consists of a tunic top decorated with silver ornaments and gorgeously hand-embroidered designs of the dragon, phoenix, fish, bird, and beast, and a hand-knitted skirt no more than 20 centimeters long. This whole costume constitutes an important facet of local folkways.

This “short-skirt” branch of the Miao group lives regions with a pleasantly temperate climate. Maybe they women wear this mini skirt to provide work facilitate in paddy field ? or, it include some hints of sex in the forepart?
