Yao Mien Ordination, Ban JongXa, Muang Sing District

Late 2007, I started my cooperation with The Traditional Arts and Ethnology Centre in Luang Prabang. The have a small museum on the slope of PhuSy mountain in Luang Prabang.
In 2008, I accompanied them to Munag Sing to record the Ordination of four men. Yao Mien, "Cousins" to the Yao Mun, also practice Taoism, but th actual ceemonies over the years have grown a bit different from those of the Yao Mun
