Banners, Longhairs, and Maz: Story of a Lost Tribe
Y.C. Chang researched his fascinating ancestors and their lost culture to write Banners, Longhairs, and Maz - Story of a Lost Tribe. His story begins with the defending battle of the Tsapoo Banner garrison against the assault of the Longhair rebel force in about 1850 to 1860 during the Ching dynasty of China. The sole survivor of the Banner garrison, Chubtai, married an aboriginal Maz tribe girl, Ah-Wu, after she saves his life, and then returns to the triumphant Banner force. After the battle, the Maz tribe lost its culture and became integrated into mainstream Chinese society. Nothing has been heard of them since, until their last descendent - this author - made the effort to find what can be remembered from this lost tribe. The two main characters, Ah-Wu, and her husband, Chubtai, are the progenitors of the family line of the author. The other notable characters of Marshall Hsiang, The Great Man, and Chang Chia-Hsiang, the brave man, are well-known historical figures in China. Banners, Longhairs, and Maz brings a period of history lost in the mists of time back to life. About the Author: Y.C.
