DESCRIPTION

This talk will focus on the unique textile traditions of the ethnic minority peoples living in the mountainous areas of Guizhou, Guangxi, and Yunnan Provinces of China. Exploring techniques and sources in South West China, we will explore the homes and villages of those continuing these amazing traditions as well as consider the impact of tourism on traditional craftsmanship. Pam will also talk about the government's commitment to UNESCO's program of Safeguarding of Cultural Heritage.

 Pam Najdowski is an independent researcher and ethnographic expert from Santa Fe, New Mexico and a frequent participant at the San Francisco Tribal & Textile Arts Show. On her way to South West China to do further research she is stopping over in San Francisco to present this talk.
