Every year the Miao, one of the 56 ethnic minorities in China, have a festival called the Sisters’ Meal Festival in Shidong. It is a festival for young lovers who pass messages to one another thru sticky rice packets-the color denotes the message- and some have gifts that also send a message. But the best part is all the great costumes and jewelry they wear for the festival – layers of it. I also like that it started with the older women playing the drums and the way the young girls have updated it with their fancy high heels.
