Men's Festival in Jinping County,Honghe

Men's Festival(男人节) in Jinping County,Honghe

07 March 2016 in Zhemi, Jinping

In traditionally male-dominated China, it might seem unfair that the men even get their own festival, but in remote Zhemi Men's Day is celebrated as a light-hearted event with lots of silly competitions.


The date given here is indicative only, the exact date is set by the villagers every year. In 2013 a particularly big festival is being planned.

相传,在很久很久以前,这里的傣族人民为了抵御外敌的骚扰和侵犯,青壮年男子全部到前线戍边抗敌。等他们打败外敌,凯旋归来的时候,村里最隆重、最热闹的节日大年已经过去了。家人和妇女们为了答谢英勇顽强御敌归来的勇士,全村男女老少在寨主的率领下,用傣族人民最高尚、最热情的礼节迎接他们:用洁净的家乡水为勇士接风洗尘,妇女和姑娘们用淘米水为勇士们洗头,用一种带刺的枝条帮他们梳理蓬乱的头发,然后重新准备过年用品,给御敌归来的男子汉们补过年,称为“小年”。因为是专为男人而过的,所以又称做“男人节”。从此,者米乡的傣族人家,在每年春节后的正月二十九这一天,都要过一次男人节。


居住在云南金平苗族瑶族傣族自治县者米拉祜族乡的傣族人民,至今还沿袭着一个传统节日———男人节。在每年的正月二十九“男人节”这一天,全村人舂粑粑、杀猪宰鸡,共同庆贺,热闹非常。


现状

如今过“男人节”,首先要举行御敌勇士凯旋归来的入寨仪式。村里的青壮年男子,头上包着一块白布,身穿傣族传统服装,挎着长刀、扛着火药枪,装扮成当年从战场上凯旋归来的勇士,全村人在村边敲锣打鼓用传统礼节迎接他们。入寨仪式结束后,开展对歌(男女分别在河两岸对唱情歌)、游泳、划船、扳手跤、爬杆、拔河、打鸡毛毽等傣族人民喜爱的传统文体活动。

男人们为了过好这个节日,节前要到河里捕鱼、上山打鸟,准备过节所需的美味佳肴。过节这一天,全村人集中在一起摆“街心宴”。男人和来宾们只管喝酒吃肉,妇女们十几人一组身穿清一色的傣族女装,排成一字队站在宴席旁,手里拿着一条裙带,向正在吃饭喝酒的人们用傣语唱歌敬酒:第一首歌说男人节的起因,说男人们辛苦了,请接受她们敬的酒;第二首歌欢迎所有的朋友来过男人节;第三首歌祝大家身体健康、生活幸福、万事如意。

酒足饭饱之后,天色渐渐暗下来,大家在一片宽阔的场地上点燃篝火,举行篝火舞会。这时候,如花似玉的傣家姑娘聚到篝火旁,不分男女老少,和客人们一起手拉着手,伴随着有节奏的锣鼓声,围着篝火跳起欢乐的团结舞。八名傣族妇女,每人抬着一架纺车乘机钻进跳舞的人群中,借着火光“吱吱吱”地纺起线来,为五彩斑斓的篝火晚会再添一道风景。
