About: Yaoshan Mountain situates in north-east Longmen County and is 18 km away from the county center. There are 45 natural villages and 7000 people.

Though ethnic Lantian Yao speaks Mandarin, they still keep many customs. They worship Dongzhu Ye (master of ethnic Lantian Yao), the ancestor of ethnic Lantian Yao. Their most representative custom is the “fire dog dance”.

As legend goes, the master of ethnic Yao’s mother died when he was still a child and his father fed him with dog milk. Therefore, they are grateful towards dogs and thus they worship the dog.

On 15th day of the eighth month of lunar calendar every year, each village in Lantian Township hold “fire dog dance”.
