Taking Nangang Millennium Yao village as an example, based on Lefebvre's three dimensional social theory framework of spatial production, this study analyzes the internal influence mechanism of spatial production, residents' role transformation and social relationship evolution in the process of tourism development. The results show that: in Nangang Millennium Yao village, the elite use the original power to build institutional space and occupy the dominant position of discourse; the bottom villagers try to build living space and realize the reproduction of social relations. The interaction between the two sides makes the local land from agricultural land to economic land. This study combs the tourism development of Nangang Millennium Yao village, and provides an empirical analysis of the impact of tourism on the social process of ethnic villages.
