The photo above was taken during a class in which villagers are learning the Hani written language at a Hani village in June of 2005. The Hani are one of many indigenous groups who populate a wide area of the mountainous border regions of China, Vietnam, Myanmar, Thailand, and Laos. Before 1957, the Hani did not have a written language. It’s about 10:00 pm on a summer night in the Ailao mountains, southern Yunnan, People’s Republic of China. These are farmers learning to read and write in their own language. Learning to read and write in any language is empowering; by learning to read and write, this community is transitioning into a more complex, more beneficial level of thinking, communicating, and living.
