education, ethnic cultural inheritance, living world, education consciousness


The connotation of traditional ethnic minorities’ cultural inheritance is tied up with their living world; however, the appearance of institutionalizing schools makes it break away their living world. This problem is mainly showed as the decline of cultural inheritance in living world and education-out-of-life in ethnic cultural inheritance. In order to make cultural inheritance in education returning to living world, education consciousness should be the internal impetus; what’s more, affected by education operation laws, those various ethnic cultural inheritance subjects should interchange with different levels of ethnic cultural inheritance objects.
