    Introduction

                 


      Shui: The Shui people live mainly in Guizhou and Guangxi. The over 12,000 Shui people in Guangxi reside mainly in Nandan, Rongshui, Huanjiang, Hechi, Duan and Laibin.
      The Shui language is only a spoken language. They have an old, rudimentary written language, which is used chiefly by sorcerers in religious and superstitious activities. The Shui are polytheists, believing that everything has a soul. Sorcerers chant incantations and animals are slaughtered as sacrifices to gods and spirits at birth and death and when there is illness, a disaster of natural calamity.
      The Shui are monogamous, and men and women of the same clan do not marry. After the wedding the bridegroom has to wait for an auspicious day to bring his bride home. After the autumn harvest, the Shui people celebrate the Duan Festival.
