Inheritance significance

Inheritance value

Hakumel's song and dance is like a "living fossil" in researching and exploring the development and evolution of the primitive hunting songs and dances of the northern nationalities. In addition, it should be noted that there are many similarities between Hakumel song and dance and Manchu "reckless" court song and dance. Especially, the fighting action in Hakumel song and dance is basically the same as Manchu "reckless and empty" one-sided, one-handed on the back, hovering gesture. This similarity is worth studying. Like other folk arts, Hakumel singing and dancing is in an endangered state, and it is urgent to take necessary measures to protect it.
