Title: A Tibetan Enclave in Yunnan: Land, Kinship, and Inheritance in Gyethang
Language of title: English
Author/Creator: Claes Corlin

Description: Article discusses the survival of traditional Tibetan lifestyles in the border areas of what is understood as geographical Tibet. These more marginal groups provide interesting cultural variation to those more geographically centralized Tibetans. These outsiders seem to have preserved a more traditional Tibetan lifestyle. Corlin figures that this preserving of tradition is easier because of less diverse cultural interaction. (Mark Premo-Hopkins 2004-01-15)
