Dr. Xi is from Nujiang (Nujiang Lisu Autonomous Prefecture) in China’s Yunnan Province, which is home to many ethnic minorities including the Lisu.
Even though living in the same prefecture, they have different languages and cultures.

She also talked about the magnificent canyon called the Grand Canyon, which was eroded by the river flowing through the mountainous region.
