Achang - History and Cultural Relations

According to Chinese records, the ancestors of Achang were called "Xunchuan" in the Tang dynasty, 1,000 years ago. At that time, they had moved from the north and east into the western areas of Yunnan. The movement continued southward and westward in the following centuries. By the thirteenth century, they had migrated into and settled in the areas where the present-day Achang live, now the Dehong Dai-Jingpo Autonomous Prefecture.
