Naxi
I feel the
Yangze River is
Flowing with misery
The Yangze River
and many fertile
lands growing from
Ancient times until
now myriad people have
enjoyed its peaceful
And warm favour
But now it is just
Beginning to flower with
the sour waves
we loathe the evil and
the Demons which destroy.

- Yang Ming Yi

Naxi, or isis, or all those feminine strong characters uniting strength and fertility. Makes me think of our past goddess somptuous reign
a delicate interpretation

The Naxi (pronounced Nashi) are one of the Chinese 'minor ethnicities' with a rich and unique culture. They are, as you say, strong and independent. Their religion is animistic, shamanistic, and nature is their goddess. A civilised people.
