Mosuo People & matriarchal Culture
 
  • Regular Class Dates
  • Private Class/Event Price
 
The Mosuo are one of the most remote and unique minority groups in China, living in the area around Lugu Lake, high in the Himalayan mountains. They have a matriarchal culture, follow Tibetan Buddhism...and perhaps their most unique and distinctive trait, they do not practice marriage. Instead, the women simply choose whatever men they are interested in, in a system called "walking marriages".

They also live in one of the poorest regions of China, and for many years have been working hard to improve the situation for themselves, and their children. Recently, John Lombard started a non-profit organization that works hand-in-hand with the Mosuo, to help them get the necessary rexources and expertise to complete projects in cultural preservation, education, and many other areas. The Mosuo Cultural Development Association has already completed projects to set up training centers for local women, and has many more plans in the future.

John Lombard will talk to CCC members about this fascinating Mosuo culture (including beautiful pictures of the Mosuo, and their communities), and about the projects he is doing with them.

Venue: China Culture Center, Chaoyang District, Beijing, China.
