The paramos mountainous area in North Shiping County, Yunnan Province is a beautiful and magical place. Here lives the majority of a branch of Yi nationality named Huayao, of which the population is just over 30,000 in the whole world. In the long history, Huayao people have created a colorful, unique and self-contained costume culture. The splendid Huayao costumes consist of turban, big front robe, collar ornament, waistband, bellyband and embroidered satin shoes, etc. The patterns include the moon, stars and clouds in the sky and mountains, water, plants and animals on the ground, giving a back-to-nature feeling of plainness, boldness and implicating graceful cultural deposits.Ctn彝族人网
