Axi Branch of Yi Nationality – The Axi's Torch Festival


The slave owner Nazhaozhao had put many poor brothers in jail. Poor men A Zhen and others tied torches on goat horns and rushed to Nazhaozhao's mansion to burn the slave owner, as well as the cords binding the poor's hands. To remember the victory, people made it a custom to parade with torches.
