Numbering nearly eight million, the Yi national minority is the seventh-largest minority group in China. The Yi are also known by the name Nuosu. They live mainly in the hillside and basin areas of Yunnan province, with significant populations in Sichuan and Guizhou provinces, and the Guangxi Autonomous Region.

Among the Nuosu Yi people of the Liangshan region, in the mountains of southwestern Sichuan, clothing and body decoration are media that express both social organization and cultural concepts. As the clothes in an ensemble (and accompanying jewelry and hairstyles) harmonize with each other to express the aesthetic ideals of womanly beauty or manly bravery, so do different kinds of outfits form. a visual code that says much about the social status of the wearer.

Group Characteristics

The Nuosu people are one of thirty or forty closely related ethnolinguistic groups that were combined to form. the Yi, one of the fifty-sixminzuor “nationalities” into which China’s population has been officially classified since the 1950s. Formerly known as Lolo, the Yi peoples now number almost eight million, living in the southwestern Chinese provinces of Yunnan (4.5 million), Sichuan (2 million), Guizhou (1 million), and Guangxi (a few tens of thousands). The Yi languages, closely related but mutually unintelligible, form. one branch of the Tibeto-Burman language family; many of these have their own writing systems, related to each other but not to Chinese, Tibetan, or any other extant scripts. Written Yi characters make up one of the earliest East Asian syllabic scripts, which was developed by the thirteenth century and is still used in the early twenty-first century. A number of works of history, literature, and medicine, as well as genealogies of the ruling families written in the old Yi script, have been preserved. Legend suggests the ancestors of the Yi were known as ancient Qiang people living in northwest China, who were recorded in the Chinese annals during the later Han dynasty (25–220 c.e.). These early people are thought to have migrated south and joined other local southwest indigenous groups to form. a new Yi ethnic group.
