A Pumi family near Muli

Pumi family, originally uploaded by jiulong.

A bit off topic this ... but the next few pictures are some nice scenes of Pumi people's lives taken in the 1980s by Shanghai photographer Shen Che, in a village called Lazi near Lugu Lake. The connection with Joseph Rock is that the Pumi are one of the most common "minority nationalities" around Muli.

These pictures come from Shen Che's excellent book Life Among the Minority Nationalities of NW Yunnan".
