TRADITIONAL HANDICRAFTS INHERITANCE AFTER BECOMING "INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGES"——A Case Study on Horsetail Embroidery of Shui Nationality

WANG Yan (Center for Ethnic and Folk Literature and Art Development, Ministry of Culture, Beijing, 100009, China)  
With the protection of intangible cultural heritage promoted, the inheritance and development of various traditional handicrafts were deeply affected. Among all the stakeholders, the role of local government is so remarkable. This paper, based on the investigation of horsetail embroidery of Shui nationality in Sandu County, discusses that after it became a "state-level intangible cultural heritage", various activities held by local government show the important promoting function of the government. The author points out that "intangible cultural heritage protection" has created a new context for the inheritance of traditional handicrafts. The inheritance channels, contents, forms and functions are changed. These changes, on one hand, expand the living space of traditional handicrafts, but on the other hand, both historical and cultural values implied in horsetail embroidery were impaired. However, we should regard them as a positive inheritance status, not magnify the negative meaning.
