Pumpkin Braised Rice in Mile County

Axi People in Mile County is a branch of Yi nationality, they have fire worship and take fire as the god.

When the corns are ripe at the autumn harvest season, Axi people have to go a long way from home to gather the corns. In order to save time for lunch, they always have lunch in the fields and in a very special way – pick a pumpkin to make a pot and cook the rice right inside of it. There is an old saying in Axi group, “No pumpkin braised rice, no energy to work.”
