  XIANNING - On Mar 8th, the relevant responsible person of Chinese Folk Literature and Art Association announced “the decision about naming Xianning as “the hometown of China ancient Yao people culture” in the municipal propaganda work conference, that is, after the inspection and argumentation, the association resolved to bestow the honor of “the hometown of China ancient Yao people culture” on Xianning, meanwhile, designate Tongcheng County as “the China ancient Yao people culture inheritance and exhibition base”, and establish “the China ancient Yao people culture research base” in HBUST (Hubei University of Science and Technology), and a plaque awarding ceremony was also held.

  “The hometown of China ancient Yao people culture” has become Xianning’s another national cultural brand after “the hometown of China Chang’e culture” and “the hometown of China Han People Folk Narrative Poem”, which indicates that the ancient Yao people culture has become a new coordinate of the Xianning cultural field.

  Xianning is one of the cradles of the ancient Yao people culture, forming a unique ancient Yao culture type. The municipal party committee and the city government put much emphasis on the research and protection of ancient Yao people culture, carrying out many relevant investigations and researches, promoting the inheritance and the development of ancient Yao people culture through launching various cultural activities, such as folk cultural tour, a series of cultural events and the Cultural Heritage Day.

  Tongcheng County Yao-style dance “flap dance” has already won the gold award of the Hubei folk song and dance television competition in 1988, then visited Europe and gave a performance there. It had also been elected the Hubei provincial intangible cultural heritage in 2007, and won the gold award of the National Minority Art Festival in 2009. The Neichong Yao ethnic village, Daping township, Tongcheng County has been elected into the Traditional Chinese villages catalog and the hometown of Hubei Yao people culture.

  Currently, municipal, county-level, village-level departments of Xianning are actively pushing forward the in-depth fusion of culture, tourism and industry, forging a new type of business format, bringing out a radiant glow in this national cultural brand in the new era.
