Lisu New Years dancing ceremony is when the Lisu girls dress up
in their finest, and often where they meet prospective husbands.
Eventually, interested boys (in the background here) will join
in circle dance with their intended date, and the dance party
continues all night long. All visitors (including you) are
encouraged to join in! Apart from the amazing headdresses, note
the traditional footwear. Lisu New Years begins at the time of
Chinese New Year. In 2019, LNY will be celebrated beginning 4
February and continuing on for several days. This photo is from
Nong Thong village, about 800 metres from Soppong River Inn.
