Change log


Wen Xiangcheng 


This collection contains audio of interviews from the Sanchuan region, in the south of Minhe Hui and Tu Autonomous County, Haidong Region, Qinghai Province China. All interviews are with huala, male villagers who regularly incarnate local tutelary deities, on such occasions as healing rituals, and the annual harvest festival. The huala interviewed here are mostly Mangghuer; the collection contains one interview with a Tibetan huala, called lha pa in the local Tibetan dialect.


The huala mentioned that his ancestors were not huala but the deity chose him as a huala. He also stated that he never had any formal initiation ceremony. 这位老人提到了他的祖先们不是法拉, 由神他们自己选择法拉。他是被二郎爷挑选,在他成为法拉的时候没有正规的仪式。
