Date: 1996
Source: Journal of the Siam Society
Abstract: in "The Ancient Culture of the Tai people: The Impact of the Hua Xia Culture on It, and Its implications," I have expressed the view that the Tai people bear a striking imprint of the Hua Xia culture on their ancient culture, which includes the god of the land, the god of the grain, and sexagenary cycle, names of places, the designation of administrative areas, and the political institutions. That paper also points out that the Thai-Tai people lived within the territory of China in ancient times. My present paper is intended as a supplement and continuation of the previous one. It will delve into and seek evidence for the influence of the Hua Xia culture on the religious beliefs, calendar making, political system, as well as the articles for cultural activities and daily use of the Thai-Tai people.
