Matang Village Gejia Minority Village

Matang Village Kaili Guizhou
Kaili region is famous for being the birthplace of some ethnic minorities. Some villages are still very difficult to access but others begin to open slowly the rest of the world. Matang Village, the Gejia minority village differs greatly from Miao and yet it is often mistaken recognized belonging to this minority.

The Matang Gejia Village is considered by the Chinese government as a subgroup of the Miao. But The Gejia people are not excited about this merger. Some like the others see themselves as separate group. Matang village, which is on the road between Kaili and Zhenyuan, is a rural village in the heart of China. Here, customs, habits and language are different from what you have seen in other villages. Matang brings up the majority of Gejia Minority, the people at the strong cultural identity known as the tribe of the sun. Although someone will hastily sell something by the entrance of the village, the rest of Matang remains peaceful and charming. Embroidery especially batiks are exposed everywhere.
