The Yi worship the tiger as their grandest totem. Yi people from Shuangbai County (Chuxiong Yi Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province) once lived in a mystical forest disturbed by serpents and wild beasts. Under the direction of the black “Tiger King,” they offer sacrifice and dance to reflect the journey and way of life of the Yi people as they visit each house to guard the village from evils. Thus “Luoma,” the Tiger Festival, was created to display The Yi people’s tiger-like strength and valor.
