Updated: Sep 11,2017 9:50 AM

Culture is the source of identity through which people make sense of their place in the world. With globalization and increasing mobility, ethnic cultures are facing unprecedented challenges to survive. Many are trying to integrate with modern society while seeking to preserve their own identity, just like the traditional wedding cultures of the Tajiks in Xinjiang, Northwest China. CGTN reporters went to Tashkurgan, the Tajik autonomous county in Northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, to document the unique Tajik wedding ceremonies.
