Traditional Songs and Stories of the Hua Miao of South West China

Ed./Corp.: Steve Rake and Keith Parsons, University of Southampton, UK
URL: http://www.ecs.soton.ac.uk/~str/miao/songs/index.html
Language: English.

Supplied note: "[The site] has been put togther by Dr Steve Rake of the
University of Southampton, using traditional songs and stories of the Miao
people of South West China collected and translated by the Rev. Keith
Parsons. (Keith is the son of Bible Christian Missionaries Harry and Annie
Parson who were colleagues of Sam Pollard in Yunnan Province in the early
years of the last century). There are also sections on the symbols and
sounds of the Miao script and Miao history and social life."

Description: The songs within this archive are presented in the form 1.
Introduction, 2. Translation, 3. Transcription, and 4. Notes. No sound
examples are available. The accompanying searchable English-Miao
Miao-English dictionary seems to be very useful (download of a Miao font is
necessary).

Site contents: (1) Using this archive (Setting up your browser, The song
documents); (2) Introduction to the Songs (The people called 'A-hmao' and
their writings, The origin of the documents, Handling the documents); (3)
The Symbols and Sounds of the Miao Script; (4) Writing Miao text and the
Ahmao font (Ahmao font Miao template Pin-yin); Index of Songs (Beginnings,
Miao 'history', Miao social life, Narratives); (5) Index of Songs
(Beginnings; Miao "history"; Miao social life; Narratives); (6) The Hua
Miao - English On-line Glossary.

Note: Contains some files in PDF format (Adobe Acrobat Reader needed).

Resource suggested via Asian Studies WWW Monitor (12 Feb 2001) by Rosemary
Seton (SOAS, UK), forwarded by Frances Wood, British Library, UK.
