In China, government improved the nomadic people lifestyle in the past 30 years, they created a new area to them called Aoluguya village, protected their culture, developed tourism industries. However, these nomadic people used to live like ‘Han’ style in these years, changed from nomadic herding to animal husbandry. what is vanishing culture is , what do these policies do during the past decades, are they subverted their hundreds years of culture and tradition by ‘over’ protected policies?what kind of aspects could impacted these culture change? are their local culture become vanishing culture by their lifestyle changed, the changes of dressing style, the changes in eating habits, the hobbies different on their daily life, weather difference ? What make them becoming ‘a national minority in Han’（’a wolf in sheep’s clothing’）
mass observation/what is the traditional to them
There are 56 nationalities in China, Han is the biggest nationality in China, the other 55 nationalities called national minorities. I’m afraid only a few about less than 300 people belong to Evenk, 230 people lived in Aoluguya village, more than 30 people still lived in the forest.

it seems a deep fear of the outside world has kept these peoples isolated for so long, and that their that fear is coming to an end, why should natives be kept under glasses forever ruled with feathers, singing and dancing. there’s no point in us worry them to stay the same to never change, of course the’ll discover the world and change, is it dangerous? yes, will it course trouble?yes. will some indians die? yes, will some go mad? sure, it’s the real world.that’s how it is.I don’t see a problem
