The Characteristics and Essence of Multiculturalism in Greater Khingan Mountains


Greater Khingan Mountains region is a relatively independent geographical area, which can be regarded as a cultural region. There are many ethnic groups such as Han, Mongol, Daur, Ewenki, Oroqen, Manchu, etc. distributed in the region. These ethnic cultures interact with specific environments. They not only form a cultural region at the macro scale, but also form sub-cultural regions with neighbouring cultures at the micro scale. These cultures, as components of cultural regions, are capable of generating new cultural traits, as well as their common cultural tendencies are underpinned by a common basis of values and religious beliefs. As a result, ethnic groups are able to harmonise with each other and coexist in an integrated manner. As educators, it is important to have an in-depth understanding of regional cultural characteristics and related issues in order to effectively and appropriately formulate relevant educational and cultural policies. This paper analyses the cultural characteristics of the Greater Khingan Mountains region by using documentary analysis as a research method. It emphasises on the characteristics and connotations of the Greater Khingan Mountains' multiculture, which includes the dimensions of its natural environment, cultural diversity, the phenomenon of multiethnic cultural integration, and religious beliefs. Eventually, the development of multiculture in the Greater Khingan Mountains are proposed to formulate relevant policies in three dimensions: protection of the ecological environment, promotion of the tourism industry, and education of multiculture, in order to form a healthy development model of "protection", "development", and "inheritance".
