Xiaotun Indeginous Paper-Making
China has a long history of making indeginous paper, and the skill has dissapeared in most regions, however it is still practised in Guizhou.
There are a few places keep this traditional technique among the ethnic groups, namely Shiqiao village in Danzhai County, Xinagzhigou Valley in Guiyang, Xiaotun in Zhenfeng County and a few villages in Yinjiang in the northeastern Guizhou. And different villages use different materials to make paper. Xiangzhigou Valley uses bamboos, however the bark of Goupi tree is used by the Miao in Shiqiao and the Buyi in Xiaotun.
So when you have chance to visit Zhenfeng, except for visiting the Buyi and Black Miao, porcelian making, one more place you should go to see is Xiaotun indegious paper-making.
