Ancestor worship ritual of Lo Lo people in Ha Giang

The ancestor worship ritual of the Lo Lo ethnic minority people in Lung Cu commune, Dong Van district, Ha Giang province was recognized as a national intangible cultural heritage element in 2012.

Ancestor worship is a sacred ritual and part of the life cycle rituals of the Lo Lo people, which aims to educate generations of the Lo Lo ethnic group of the tradition “When drinking water, remember its source.” It is a beautiful custom, rich in cultural identity of the Lo Lo community.

The People’s Army Newspaper would like to introduce some images of the ritual.



In early morning, Lo Lo men go to the forest to look for plants and grass, and then disguise themselves as "grass ghosts."
The bronze drum is a sacred treasure of the Lo Lo community and is the only musical instrument used in the ritual.
A shaman conducts the ritual in the witness of the community.
“Grass ghosts” dancing until the end of the ceremony
