The Deang ethnic museum, lying in Santaishan Township and opened in April 2010, is the first one of its kind in Dehong Dai and Jingpo Autonomous Prefecture. Its architectural style features the traditional folk residence of the Deang ethnic minority living in Dehong, West Yunnan. Covering about 600 square meters, the museum consists of a main hall, a dynamic performance hall, a handicraft exhibition hall, and a lecture hall, representing high values in such fields as ethnology, history, art, and aesthetics.
The Deang ethnic minority is one of the oldest nationalities of China. Studies have shown it is also one of the earliest dwellers in West Yunnan. De'ang members have created a profound ethnic culture of their own that is deemed a miracle in China. The museum is bound to play a big role in saving, excavating, preserving, and carrying forwards the language, farming tradition, religion, costumes, cuisine, literature, music and art of the Deang ethnic group.
