Hechi CPPCC members showcase culture of ethnic minority groups
The fifth session of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) opened in Beijing on March 4, in which four CPPCC National Committee members from Guangxi's ethnic minority groups wore traditional clothing to showcase the rich culture of their ethnic groups.
Ou Yanling, a Mulam member of the 13th CPPCC National Committee, is from Hechi's Luocheng Mulam autonomous county. Her hat and the front of her clothes were embroidered with the Mulam's phoenix pattern, while her skirt and sarong were embroidered with traditional patterns, such as fish and pomegranates, symbolizing Mulam people's yearning for a better life, as well as their praise for the country's common prosperity and development efforts.
As the only Maonan member of the 13th CPPCC National Committee, Wei Zhenling said that she will detail the great changes that have occurred in Maonan areas by wearing the traditional clothing of the ethnic group, giving speeches at the conference, and communicating with other CPPCC members. She added that she felt very proud when she was able to showcase the culture of ethnic minority groups while attending the CPPCC every year.
