Representatives of the Ewenki ethnic group in Harbin and the Hani ethnic group in Southwest China’s Yunnan province started an activity in Harbin on June 1 to promote their respective cultures.

The event included two parts: one for people of Ewenki ethnicity to demonstrate their traditional skills, such as making clothes by using birch bark; and the other for people of Hani ethnicity to perform songs in their traditional language.

The event gave the two ethnic groups an opportunity to show off their rich cultural heritage to a wider audience, with Harbin residents getting the chance to know more about the Ewenki and Hani peoples.
