Ruins caused by the earthquake have gone, all you see is a new village full of imprints of Qiang culture. When come to the gate of Baishi Qiang Village, you will see there is a big sheep head hanging on the gate as Qiang people consider sheep as a mascot for their ethnic. And when you walk through in Baishi Qiang Village, you will find there are white stones here and there. Qiang people regard white stones as their god as legend said ancestors of Qiang people were rescued against their enemies by three white stones dropped by the Goddess. This is why you see Qiang people worship white stones in mountains, forests, roofs, windows and indoors. Also you will see bright lights reflected from piles of holy white stones in the village.
