Heshen Festival of Lisu Ethnic Minority

Heshen Festival(盍什节) of Lisu Ethnic Minority in Yuanmou County,Chuxiong

"Burying lovers with river sand" is one of the most age-old courting means for men and women of Lisu minority. When "Heshen" Festival draws near, young Lisu people in Fugong and the neighboring region will come in groups to the extensive beach of Nujiang River and look for their own spouse freely.

Once a man and a woman fall for each other, the man will dig a pit on the beach and summon several male buddies to carry the lady of his heart to the pit, and then bury her body with fine sand. After that, the buddies will dash away, and the man will remove the sand immediately. In this way, he has expressed his adoration to the lady.

过去,傈僳族在习惯上以十二属相推算日子,一个月份作三二,没有闰月,也不像夏历那样分大小月。“盍什节”是傈僳族最主要的节日,所以人们从很早就开始进行筹备。首先准备过年用柴禾,进入十二月中旬,要用十多天砍过年用的柴,最起码也要够十三天所用的。在二十六、二十七两天(傈僳历时猪日和鼠日)舂醮,准备好13天吃的粮食。二十八日〈兔日〉杀猪宰羊煮酒,清扫房间。二十九日〈龙日〉,蒸天雄米饼,这是为死去的祖父母、父母和兄弟等近亲上供用,同时也是过年期间家人食用的糕点。这种糕饼不同于其他食物,除去婚丧事外,一年就做这一次。这一天还要采折松树枝,松枝数目要与全家男人人数相同,他们以为松树四季常青,枝上出油,能去疾病。三十日(蛇日)是除夕,晚上全家人无论有什么事都要回到自己家里。从除夕开始,禁止到别人家去,即使是分了家的父子兄弟家也不能来往,直到初三后才解除限制。一、二、三、五、七、九、十三,全家必须吃干饭,认为只有这样才不生病。十三日结束。
