Abstract

The funeral ceremony contains the core world outlook, outlook on life and values of the nation. It also carries many national historical information and is an important channel for inheriting the history and culture of the nation. The funeral ceremony of Qiang people is an outward appearance of its beliefs and a core part of the traditional culture of the nation. By combing the historical changes of the traditional funeral ceremony of Qiang people, we can better understand today’s Qiang people and their culture. This is the basis of a national culture consciousness, and it is also the way for others to understand the nation.
