Traditional Bai Spring Festival in Yunnan

Every year Bai people in Heqing celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year.

“Baizu are one of the ethnic minorities in China. Although most Bai people adhere to Buddhism, they also have their native religion of Benzhuism: the worship of ngel zex (Chinese: 本主 ben zhu), local gods and ancestors. Ngel zex could be any heroes in history, the Prince of the Nanzhao regime, a hero of folklore or even a tiger (for instance, Laojun Jingdi 老君景帝 is a tiger actually). There are also minorities practicing Taoism and Christianity.” [Wikipedia]
