Jianshui 建水Yunnan Province: Which Minority? Can you help?

Jianshui Yunnan Province

Do you recognise this minority?

Is she Yi / Hani / Miao or Yao?

Which Ethnic Minority?

Jianshui 建水  2006.  This photo was taken in 2006 in Jianshui, Yunnan province from the top of the city gate. I have been trying to work out which ethnic minority this lady belongs to for a while now. My guess is that she is from the Yi Minority 彝族, but there are also Miao苗族, Hani哈尼族 and Yao瑶族 minorities in the vicinity of Jianshui. If anyone else can be more precise I’d be grateful.

  1. Wow but I don’t know.

  2. I think she is from the Yao minority because of the Black hat.
