working on my final paper while at work

Ethnohistory ANTH 434
Chinese Lineage, Marital Arts, and Lion Dancing... lots of hidden stuff
1. Oral traditions
2. Chinese "oral tradition" is a physical tradition, a skill... a martial arts style that remains in one family and when it is taught to outsiders, a few of the details of the moves are left out
3. Tai Chi is a fighting style
4. Lion Dancing
3 stories of origin...
Northern and Southern Styles...
what used for...
what colors mean...
explain the band...
more than one reason to learn :
defense against the soldiers,
schools fought..., learned in secret
need to start a babble about this and then edit... I think it would go faster.
