Woluo Festival of Achang Ethnic Group in Lianghe County,Dehong

luwoluo Festival is the grandest traditional festival of the A’chang People. It originates from a kind of ancient religious ceremony for God of Heaven (Zhepama) and Goddess of Earth (Zhemima).

During the festival, a special sign will be erected at the center of an open-air stage. A bow and arrow are designed on the top of the sign with the arrow pointing up into the sky symbolizing that Zhepama shot the false sun made by a demon named Lahong. Besides, a blue dragon and white elephant stand for auspiciousness.  

A’chang members will get attired in their traditional costumes and get together near the open-air stage. At the beginning of the festival, Huopao (priest) will burn joss sticks and deliver the eulogy first, and then butcher a red rooster as sacrificial offerings for Zhepama and Zhemima. The opening of the festival will be followed by jubilant dance named Aluwoluo.
