Entries in Minzu University (2)



At some point during all my trips to China, I give a seminar on my work to the students and staff at Minzu University in Beijing (see Minzu and Thermos Bottles). These are usually pretty well attended. That's me on the left, Dr. Miguel Pinedo-Vasquez from Columbia University in the middle, and Hannah Stevens from The New York Botanical Garden GIS Lab on the right.  Our presentations were enthusiastically received. [NOTE: I talked about my community forestry work in Myanmar this time (see Shinlonga)].


Minzu (中华民族)

Part of an enormous mural in the Ethnic Museum at Minzu University showing the 55 recognized ethnic minorities in China. The Miao (see A Gathering of Miao and Welcome), with their beautiful silver headdresses and necklaces, are shown in the lower right of the image. I was told to put my camera away shortly after taking this picture. [NOTE: Non-Han Chinese are known as "nationalities"; the Chinese word for this is minzu (中华民族)]
