Dragon dance in the ceremony of Huayao Yi people's Festival of "Offering a Sacrifice to Dragon" is a sacrificial culture developed on the basis of Chinese ethnic culture and oriented to ethnic traditional sports. This Festival is one of the representative ethnic celebrations of Huayao Yi people. Its rituals of offering a sacrifice to dragon and dragon dance are not only the everlasting epitomes of the ethnic culture, but also the typical models of ethnic traditional sports. Meanwhile, "Huayao Yi" is Nisu branch of Yi people and descendant of ancient Qiang people. Females participating in dragon dance would wear a mysterious veil. Hence, making a deep excavation on its culture becomes a historical mission. In this context, it is necessary to make research on this ancient ethnic sport system.
