On June 5, an exhibition marking the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the Morin Dawa Daur Autonomous Banner in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region was opened at the Cultural Palace of Nationalities in Beijing. With a population of 132,000, the Daur is one of the oldest ethnic groups in China. The Daur people mainly live in Inner Mongolia, Heilongjiang Province and Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. In the Daur language, Morin Dawa means "mountains that are difficult for even a gallant horse to climb." Many of the folk traditions of the Daur ethnic group have been included in the country's list of intangible cultural heritage.
