A’Lian, who lives in Langdeshang Village in Miao and Dong Autonomous County in southeast Guizhou Province, has raised a son and a daughter. Besides performing folk dances for tourists, she often, carrying a small bamboo basket, sells her hand-made silver and embroidered adornments to tourists like any other Miao woman. “This doesn’t make too much money, but at least it is better than just feeding pigs or cultivating land,” she said.
