Example text

It was inconceivable that his wife had danced on the day of her mother-in-law's funeral! It was so disgraceful that he forced her to leave with her young daughter, Zhunmaasuu (b. 1968). Two years later she married into a Tibetan home in Zhuashidi Village, Danma Town, where Tibetan, Mongghul, and Han live together. Jiraqog's Tibetan husband, Lamuduriji (1942-1995), spoke fluent Tibetan. However, his family members now speak the local Chinese dialect, except when using certain Tibetan kinship terms to address each other.

In 1952, he was assigned to the Funong 富农 'Rich Man' category. The family was destroyed. Four poor families moved into Grandfather's home and occupied rooms on three sides of the compound. Only two rooms on the northwest side were his to use. The new 'guests' brought no freedom. The chimney was forced to stop smoking. If Grandfather's chimney smoked the 'guests' notified the village head or local militia who soon rushed in, searched every room, and took whatever food they found. Next, Grandfather and some of his family members were forced to stand in the village's horse yard, primary school ground, or temple ground with their hands tied behind their backs and their heads bowed as punishment.

Informants said Tughuan Village was the first village in Danma Valley and that the original inhabitants had left Fulaan Nara Tughuan 13 This refers to a boy marrying his mother's brother's daughter and a girl marrying her father's sister's son.
