Updated: March 9, 2024

"Intangible cultural relics are not antiques scattered with dust, but living fossils in life," said Yang Yuni, born in 1996, a young member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

Yang, of Hani ethnic group, was born in the Hani terrace of Honghe, Southwest China's Yunnan province. She founded a Yuni culture and art center when she was a freshman in college. After graduation, she returned to her hometown and began to teach Hani songs and dances in an innovative way. Yang shared her experience of promoting intangible culture among ethnic minority youth, hoping to combine traditional culture with modern popular elements in a way that young people can appreciate.
