From the traditional history of Hani people, we can see that Hani people are an open-minded, creative, enterprising and strong vitality nation. In the process of migration with hardship and farming in mountainous areas, Hani people, without traditional writing, inherited from generation to generation many touching and exciting grand poems and ancient songs, such as migration epics "Hani Abe Congpo", "Janiyaga Zangga", "Duma Brief Collection", "The Most Grassy Tuma Round", and ancient wedding songs. OuXiayi, the ancient funeral song "The Song of Ama's Death", the folk narrative poem "The Twelve Slaves Bureau" and so on, all have great momentum to reflect the national spirit and personality of the Hani people, and become a splendid flower in the hundred gardens of the Chinese Cultural Garden.

The poem has a complete plot and vivid characters. It is a song of praise for labor and pure love. More importantly, it is a hero's Ode to the most outstanding young men and women of the Hani nationality who resist oppression and strive for freedom and indomitable soul. No wonder the Hani people are so obsessed with it that when they hear old singers playing and singing, they often stay together for several nights. Because it expresses the wishes of the Hani people and sings the voice of the Hani people. The tragedies of the protagonists Lodgeroye and Zaszai are the historical tragedies that the Hanis have suffered. The young men and women stood up for the survival of the masses and were chopped into pieces of meat and meat sauce and still resurrected. The legend that the soul will never die, though still dead, is an artistic representation of the strong character of this frontier nation. No wonder the people of Hani call them Aki Lodgroye, the highest honorable hero, and Miza Zaszai, the highest honorable flower of wisdom and beauty.

In this long narrative poem, from the birth, growth, meeting and marriage of Lodgroye and Zaszai to the leading anti-rent, brave and unyielding, magnificent devotion, it not only reflects the strong character of the outstanding youth of Hani nationality in pursuit of freedom and fearing violence, but also reflects the production and living conditions, folk customs, marriage relations and bustling commodity exchanges in the streets and markets at that time.

For example, in the fifth volume, it was written that Lodgeroye promised the girls who were planting rice seedlings to play the strings to play "Invite Family Tune" to them: "When the strings started, the girls loved to listen; when the strings went down, the girls were very sweet"; "Seventy girls, seventy shapes: some listened straight, some listened crookedly, some listened with their ears sideways, and some listened with their rice seedlings." "Seventy girls'hearts fascinated Lodgeroye's strings. They lost their rice seedlings in their hands, their scarves on their heads, their sisters-in-law, and their dolls fell into the fields. This scene is not only reminiscent of the famous ancient Yuefu of the Han people, "Moshang" in which all the people gaze around and watch the beauty Luofu's eternal absolute singing!

This heroic ode sings the honest, pure and stubborn national character of Hani people, as well as the wisdom and awakening of Frontier brothers and nationalities. It does not end with the usual reunion, but with a magnificent tragedy. And the tragedy happened because the Hani people came out of the ruin like Nihan. Use the excessive kindness and innocence of his compatriots to carry out tricks. So, "Nihan shot Lodgeroye quietly with Lodgeroye's crossbow; the soldiers and horses of the three rivers and two provinces captured Lodgeroye alive." The singer repeatedly chanted sadly, "Unfortunately, Lodgeroye's father's heart is too kind to see Nihan's tricks, but Lodgeroye's mother's heart is too kind to see Nihan's tricks." "Unfortunately, Lodgeroye was too honest, but Zaszai was too honest. They spoke to Nehan in their hearts." These touching sad words mark the growth and awakening of the wisdom of the Hani people, which is the result of seven days and seven nights of blood from their beloved heroes and heroines nailed to the rocks by copper nails.
