Some Videos about the Baima Tibetan


Four Sisters from Baima - Zhang Tongdao - 68 min - 2003

The Baima tribe is a Tibetan branch that still maintained primitive matriarchy and lived on hunting not long ago. In 1999, as a protective measure against the disastrous floods in the area where the Baima tribe has always lived, the government decided to blockade the mountain area and hunting was no longer allowed. This forced the tribe to change its traditional lifestyle. The four sisters in this documentary are the most beautiful girls in the Baima tribe. Blessed with native talents in singing and dancing, they are among the first to explore the local tourist business. They made money through performing for tourists and this caused controversy among the villagers. However, some of them followed the four sisters' example and joined the tourism business. The once quiet village has been growing restless ever since.
