Mamuteyi  Ma mu te yi

Mamuteyi, translated into Chinese as Education Classic, is the product of the slavery society of the Yi people in Liangshan. In the Yi language, "Ma" means education, instruction and persuasion, while "Mu" means wisdom, wisdom and excellence, and "Teyi" means books and scriptures. Ma Mu Teyi is a Scripture for educating people to do things and be human beings. It is also translated into the Educational, Xunshi and Xunshi Poems. Because of transliteration, Mamuteyi is sometimes translated into Mamuteyi and Mamuteyi.

Historical origin

Mamuteyi has a long history. Its spread is mainly in the form of recitation, oral transmission and handwritten copy, which is embodied in the traditional folk culture of Yi people, such as various folk mottos and poems. Up to now, there is no unified version of Mamuteyi.

In Yi society, there are two kinds of legends about the author of Mamuteyi: one is that Mamuteyi was written by an ancient man named Akalaz (also known as Bakalazi), and that Akalaz and Shierot were of the same age, even the legend about Shierot was written by him; the other is that Mamuteyi was written by Adulp. People do. Among the three men, Sia Niu Zi, Akala Zi and Adulp, Akala Zi is older, followed by Sia Niu Zi and Adulp Zi. But Adulp has 30 to 40 generations since then. If we calculate each generation by 30 years, it has more than 1000 years. Therefore, Mamuteyi has undergone a long and gradual process of formation, but the formation of more than a thousand years is worth our further investigation.

From the content of social history, hierarchical relations, ideological development, dialectics, civilization progress, customs, ethics, outlook on life and values of the Yi people included in Mamuteyi, it can not be from one person at a time, but the crystallization of collective wisdom of the Yi ancestors of countless generations, which is gradually stereotyped on the basis of long-term oral transmission.

Age of generation

Mamuteyi is an important classic of Yi language education, which is popular in Liangshan and Liangshan, and is the main representative of Yi folk oral literature. For thousands of years, Ma Mu has been educating and standardizing the Yi people from all aspects, and has played an important role in the education and social life of the Yi people in Liangshan. The historical origin of Ma Mu can not be accurately verified. Combining with its content, it can be inferred that Ma Mu was the product of the formation of class society, and its spread history has been long. Although there are Mamu's Akaraja, Adulp and Anuzipu's works among the Yi people, we can see that Mamu can not be an individual creation in one place at a time according to its content, form, social function and circulation, but a collection of the experience of the Yi people for thousands of years, which is the crystallization of the collective wisdom of the Yi people.
