Indigenous-Minority Poets from China: 15 Recordings for International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, by Ming Di

Indigenous-Minority Poets from China: 15 Recordings for International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, by Ming Di Audio Poetry [email protected] Tue, 08/08/2023 - 14:48 Photo by Nicolas Winkler / Flickr To celebrate the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples on August 9, I invited fifteen Indigenous-minority poets from China to record their readings of their own short poems in their Indigenous-minority mother tongues. Most of the languages presented here are endangered. Some may be never heard of, such as Dagur, Yugu, Bonan, Nu, Derung, Lahu, and Mulao, even for people inside China. I have arranged the poets/languages geographically in a counterclockwise order: from Northeast to Northwest, down to Southwest, South, and up to the Southeast-East coast of China. All the authors are bilingual in their native Indigenous-minority languages and Mandarin Chinese. Some are even biliterate. Two of them are singer-lyricist-musicians who speak rare languages and who promote their mother tongues to a larger audience than what poets could ever reach.    Here is a list of the authors by name, year of birth, ethnicity, and province/region:  1. Wu Yingli (b. 1967), Daur from Inner Mongolia  2. Ha Mo (b. 1973), Dongxiang from Gansu  3. A Marjen, Yugu from Gansu  4. Ma Xuewu (b. 1972), Bonan from Gansu  5. Kulaxihan Muhamaitihan (b. 1974), Kazakh from Gansu  6. Abiba Yiminjan (b. 1975), Tajik from Xinjiang  7. Yomqung... Continue reading at 'World Literature Today'
