Dungan Wedding

by Soledad Jiménez Tovar

It is through dressing the bride that Dungan gender conceptions are embodied. At the same time, choosing a particular style of wedding dress imply taking position respecting the whole cultural worldview in such a differentiated society as the Dungan one is. I show one picture of the bride and one of a boy who was having a look to her. On the other hand, the little boy incarnates for me the attitude normally show Dungans at the local milieu, i.e. curiosity, somehow distance, etc.
