From participation in the harvest festival, field investigation of Jiali Village, to literature review, we spent over half year on this project. We were impressed with the enthusiastic local residents, who always had so much to say about the past and present of the harvest festival. From their narrations, we gained better understanding of the harvest festival, and because of them, our project is more meaningful. We explore the Jiali culture with much respect and gratitude.
