This paper,on the basis of the fieldwork on the representative inheritors of national intangible cultural heritage,reflects on the problems of the system of representative inheritors,analyzes the reasons for the problems,and puts forward measures for problem-solving and/or suggestions for decision-making.The fieldwork has revealed such problems with the system as low levels of community participation in the selection of inheritors,confused use of government funds,incomplete mechanisms for succession of inheritors,lack of an assessment system for the effect of inheritance,and tiny proportion of women inheritors.To solve these problems,we need to:(1) redefine the connotation of "ICH subjects",i.e.,while recognizing the roles of "individuals",we should adopt the "collective qualification" that incorporates chief members of "groups" and "communities";(2) set up the community participation system in the selection of inheritors;(3) perfect the succession mechanism of representative inheritors,and(4) increase the proportion of women inheritors.
