This is really fascinating. I watched a documentary about these people recently and am basing my research on them for a project. Where did you get your information from? I'm struggling to find reliable sources?

I got my info from a book on Joseph Rock by SB Sutton. There's also a book specifically by the Mosuo by a local woman called Namu.
