An ethnic Miao group man shaves another villager's head with a sickle in the village of Basha in Congjiang county, Guizhou province Nov 16, 2011. The village, with a branch of ethnic Miao group of about 2,100 in population, is believed to be the last village authorized by the government to keep guns. The Basha men used to make their living as hunters with guns on their shoudles and knives on their waist. But nowadays their tradition has become a way to boost tourism, local media reported.
