Knife-Pole Festival(刀秆节)

As a traditional festival of Lisu ethnic minority, the Knife-Pole Festival expresses good wishes to everyone of the Lisu. A phrase describing bravery in China goes like this, "climbing the Knife Mountain and diving into the Fire Sea" and the Knife-Pole Festival is a vivid depiction of this. On the eve of the festival, a grand bonfire is set alight with people dancing around it, later, some of the bolder men leap in the fire, extinguishing it barefooted. It is widely believed that through this act all manner of disasters will be averted.


Flower Festival(花节)

Flower festival is celebrated by the Nu people on the 15th day of the 3rd lunar month (April in 2013) every year in Nujiang Prefecture, Yunnan Province. It is the grandest festival for the Nu.

All the Nu girls dress up and bring prepared sacrificial offerings to worship at the "fairy" cave in mountains on the day. Elders wearing traditional costumes chant scriptures beside altar, playing horn (a woodwind instrument) and beating drum at the same time. Lots of pines, flowers and corns are inserted around the the mouth of the cave, indicating good luck, happiness and harvest.After the sacrificial ceremony, girls walk toward the cave to take "milk" of the "fairy" (water drops that dripped off stalactites in the cave is regarded as the "milk" of "fairy" by locals), praying for blessing from fairy. Then, people sit around hillside and enjoy foods together.

A archery competition is held then by the young people to add joy to the festival. In addition, they sing and dance around bonfires for the whole night.


Sanduo Festival(三朵节)

Sanduo festival is the grandest one among the numerous festivals celebrated by the Naxi people. It is observed each year on the 8th day of the 2nd month of the Chinese calendar. Legend says that Sanduo, the ancestor of the Naxi people, subdued devils and protected the people. The Naxi people regard the god Sanduo as their supreme, or protector, god. To honor Sanduo, the local people built a temple on Jade Dragon Mountain in honor of him. On this day, people gather at the temple to offer sacrifices. Many Naxi people of the Lijiang area who do not participate directly in the Sanduo Festival often participate indirectly by attending outdoor picnics in honor of the "Offering Sacrifice to Sanduo" ceremony.
