|MATRILINEAL MOSO VILLAGES
Since 1981, Wong How Man has made many visits to Luguhu, home of the Moso people. Beginning in 1993, CERS conducted organized research on two select villages around the lake. We successfully helped publicize these two villages. Wong, as Advisor and Selection Committee Member during the United Nations 50th Anniversary celebrations in 1994, help list the villages as Model Communities. Between 1994 and 1997 we focused on Lige Village, which is located on a small peninsula jutting into the lake. We executed a major clean-up campaign and established a home-based exhibit of old artifacts of the Moso. A school was built through the support of Coca-Cola in association with CERS. Several cultural rites, including the vanishing funeral ceremony, have been documented on film.
