Man Mengling, Jin Qianqiu, Phakamas Jirajarupat


As the official road of “opening the border” of the central dynasties, the Miao corridor made the Han people in the Central Plains flow into the southwest minority areas, stationed troops in the local areas, and engaged in business and trade. They gradually communicated and integrated with the local minorities in life, economy, technology and cultural customs. The Han people who entered the Miao corridor gradually integrated into the life of Southwest nationality and became a part of Southwest nationality. Based on the current situation of southwest ethnic dance culture integration, this paper will divide the dance culture in the Miao corridor into three categories. Firstly, the dance culture of southwest minority influenced by Han culture, such as Miao Nuo Dance and Dong "Dong Dong Tui"; next is the Han dance culture influenced by southwest minority culture, such as Han lantern dance; and lastly is the dance culture expressing the common history or events between Han and southwest minority. From the blend of southwest ethnic dance culture and the international characteristics of Miao corridor, we noticed that southwest ethnic dance culture has a common spiritual cohesion for Chinese groups at home and abroad. As a part of the Chinese nation community, the dance culture of southwest nationality has the characteristics of mutual blending. Through the inheritance and development of the southwest national dance culture, it can convey the spirit of unity of the Chinese nation.
