But these aren’t just Christmas ornaments. They come from mountainous Northwest China. In this province lives the Muslim people group, the “DX”. Impoverished and poorly educated, the vast majority of this ethnic group are subsistence farmers, with an average yearly family income less than $200. Because female illiteracy over 90%, Most women can do some farming, but many are stuck with no income & no way to provide for them selves if the men don’t show up with cash.
