The Last Nomads: Photographs from Inner Mongolia by A Yin

The Last Nomads: Photographs from Inner Mongolia by A Yin

The Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region transverses almost two-thirds of China’s northern border and is the third largest of China’s provinces. Its vast grasslands account for one-fourth of China’s total grasslands area.

Mongolian nomads have a long history in China and are often hailed for their bravery and enduring spirit. The Wuzhu Muqin is among the last remaining nomadic tribes in Inner Mongolia and one of the oldest; its roots can be traced back to Chinggis Khan’s descendants in the seventeenth century.
