As one of the important parts of Chinese literature, “Kangding QiJian” writes about the harmonious symbiosis of multiculturalism, patriotism and the change of the times from the level of the sense of community for the Chinese nation. The Khampa plateau depicted in their works is an important trade channel for the tea-horse exchange and a contiguous zone for multi-ethnic cultural exchanges and collisions. “Kangding QiJian”, starting from Kangding to the whole country and to the world, writes about life on the plateau, which shows a strong patriotic enthusiasm, to grasp the pulse of the times and the trend of the times. “Kangding QiJian” has always closely linked personal life, plateau life and the characteristics of the times, eulogizing the new life, praising the new era, singing for the new China, and depicting the frontier picture, to build a common spiritual home for all ethnic groups. 


“Kangding QiJian”; harmonious symbiosis of multiculturalism; patriotism; change of the times
