Mexican Embassy

Against the background of an exhibition of Naxi Tongba art, including some of his own works, Mr. Zhang Chunhe, Labajuma, a Naxi artist, will give us a lecture about his people and their Tongba culture. There are 250,000 Naxi living mainly in Yunnan province; their culture, called Tongba, has its roots in the Tongba religion in which elements of Bon Shamanism, Taoism, and Buddhism may be found.
