ABSTRACT

The Conggang Village in the Gaoligong Mountains of Yunnan Province is a multi-ethnic coexistence village. The phenomenon of harmonious coexistence of multiple ethnic cultures has a complex historical context, which is inextricably linked with the spread of Christianity among the Lisu people. This paper discusses the spontaneously formed community with ethnic characteristics of the Lisu ethnic group and the relationship between the livelihood patterns of local ethnic Christians and ethnic beliefs, as well as the Christian faith of multi-ethnic harmonious coexistence, from the historical changes, production and life, language culture, written culture, ancient legends, and religious mechanisms of the Lisu ethnic group.
