    Introduction

                 


      Yi: The fewer than 10,000 Yi people in Guangxi live mainly in Longlin, Napo and Xilin counties. The Yi people are descendants of the ancient Qiang people who migrated to the south and intermarried with the southern tribes.
      The Yi believe in polytheism. The high priest was called Bimo. There is a form of marriage called  "continued marriage" or "changing house", in which a brother marries the widow of his deceased brother. The Touch Festival is a popular holiday for young men and women. Carrying torches and musical instruments, they attend a bonfire dance party, singing and dancing until dawn.
