March 05, 2024 3 min read


In our last dive into Yao Secret's world, we soaked up the empowering energy of Yao women during International Women's Day. Today, our adventure takes a new turn as we dive into the mesmerizing realm of Yao's March 3rd Festival—an extension of our journey that intricately interweaves the threads of heritage, customs, and heartfelt tales within the Yao tribe.

Discovering the Cultural Marvel: Yao's March 3rd Festival

During a recent chat with Haili, a cherished member of the Yao tribe, we stumbled upon a cultural marvel—the brilliance of Yao's March 3rd Festival. Unlike the widespread celebration of International Women's Day, this festival holds a special place in the hearts of the Yao people. It's worth noting that March 3rd falls on April 11th, 2024, in the solar calendar.

Carrying Forward the Festival Tradition

Known as the "Daughter's Festival," Yao's March 3rd stands tall as a symbol of cultural richness and continuity. On this extraordinary day, Yao women grace the occasion in traditional attire, engaging in lively dances that signify the transmission of traditions and customs to the next generation.

Heartfelt Customs and Maternal Love
