with ancient trees, which have been protected
as carriers of ancestor's spirits fro generations.

is most completely protected, and this group is
quite different from other Miao groups in terms

wearing guns and knives everyday. They made their
unique clothes themselves in the village. Their
hair is mostly shaved except in the middle, where
it is twisted and knotted.
