Abstract
Gan Nuo folk culture has a long history, rich content and far-reaching influence. According to archaeological findings, this folk culture originates from the Shang and Zhou Dynasties or even earlier ancient times. It is a form of primitive folk customs integrating religion, folk customs and art as a mode of dialogue between human beings and gods. With the rapid development of social history, the innovation of people's concepts, the contents of Gan Nuo also has changed a lot, adding new elements of modern culture and developing towards the direction of popular, life-oriented and entertaining, and even to service in Gan Po the development of economy, trade and industry, to show its unique artistic charm. It is no exaggeration to say that the folk culture of Gan Nuo is not only an important part of the culture in Gan Po, but also the "living fossil" of China's primitive opera and dance. In the process of its development, a large number of dialects and vulgarisms reflecting Nuo customs have also sprang up with rich and colorful contents. These dialects and vulgarity have very distinct regional characteristics, either to present the sacrificial ceremony, or to present the nuo drama art, or to present the folk customs. Currently, we should not only tap and use this national intangible cultural heritage such as Gan Nuo efficiently, but also protect and develop them to inject new vitality into them in the course of promoting ethical progress in the new era.
