The legend behind this festival says that when the Hani ancestors were digging the soil to grow rice, the small animals living in the soil got hurt. So they complained about that to their god who punished the Hani people by sending them on very high swings to scare them. The small animals then forgave the Hani people. Since that time, every year in June, Hani people have this ceremony to beg for a good rice harvest.Locations:Asia-China-YunnanDate:24 Jun, 2004Credit:© Greenpeace / John NovisMaximum size:3500px X 5303pxKeywords:Asian and Indian ethnicities-Day-Farmers-Farming-Festivals-KWCI (GPI)-Local population-Outdoors-Rice-Rice is Life (campaign title)-Traditions-WomenShoot:Rice Farming Documentation in ChinaA collection of images showing the life of rice farmers in China.
