Hani ethnic group
The Hani people inhabit Yunnan province. It is interesting to mention the marriage custom: if a boy and a girl fall in love with each other, their parents will walk for a stretch. If on the path, they meet no wild animals like rabbits or wolf, this means the success of engagement.
The Hani people like the navy blue clothes they weave and dye themselves. Men wear a front opening coat and wrap their heads with black or white cloth; while women's clothes have a right forepart without a collar. Silver decorations are popular among them to hang.
Second part of the story will be published tomorrow.
