Welcome to my new short series The Last Matriarchy!
The Mosuo, China
Although they are recognized as a minority by the Chinese government, the Mosuo women have successfully established themselves as one of the last matriarchs living in Yunnan and Sichuan Provinces in China.
The self-sustained Mosuo community is primarily based on agriculture and animal husbandry. The local economy tends to be barter-based, which is changing due to constant influence from the outside world.
