May All Good Things Gather Here: Life, Religion, and Marriage in a Minyag Tibetan Village

January 20, 2012

This work documents marriage customs and related oral traditions in 
Bang smad Village, Bang smad Township, Nyag rong County, Dkar mdzes 
Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province, China. Villagers 
speak the poorly documented Mi nyag language. This study provides 
novel linguistic and ethnographic data, including a Mi nyag-English 
word list, maps showing the distribution of Mi nyag-speaking 
communities, and numerous full-color photographs of village life and 
wedding festivities. Of special interest are the transcribed wedding 
speeches locally given in Mi nyag and Tibetan.
