China’s ethnic minorities celebrate Dragon Head Raising Festival

It’s time to celebrate the start of Spring and the traditional return to farming. That’s what China’s “Longtaitou Festival” or “Dragon Head Raising Festival” is all about. It falls on the second day of the second lunar month when people of the Miao minority mount stage plays drawing on their ancient oral traditions and girls of the Qiang minority demonstrate their embroidery skills. China sees a diverse embracement of ethnic traditions, helping to ensure future generations retain a connection to their heritage.
