The resource has been added to your collection
Residing today primarily in the northwestern part of Chinaâs Yunnan province near the Tibetan and Burmese borders, the Naxi people are one of Chinaâs fifty-six ethnic national minorities in the country. Their kingdom flourished for close to a thousand years, and along the way they created a language that used primarily pictographs. Recently, the Library of Congress completed cataloging their tremendous collection of Naxi manuscripts, and since that time, they have also created this online presentation. The materials available here include 185 manuscripts, a 39 foot funerary scroll, and an annotated catalog. Visitors may wish to start by reading the overview of the collection, then continue on to search all of the documents here by subject, keyword, or title. Visitors should not miss the lovely âWarrior riding a white cowâ or the fragmentary, yet powerful, âSerpent Kingâ.
