Oroqens celebrate Fire God Festival

Two Oroqen women compete in a neck-wrestling contest during the Gulunmuta Festival when the Oroqens worship their God of Fire, in the Aihui district of Heihe city, Northeast China's Heilongjiang province, on August 6, 2010. The Oroqen ethnic minority, with a population of about 8,000, is the third smallest of the 55 ethnic minorities in China. During their festival, they sing songs, dance around bonfires and participate in traditional ethnic sports. [Photo/Asianewsphoto]
