By Doug Fabrizio

Yunnan Province, China – In China, market and social reforms have produced a booming economy, but they've also raised some questions about the future of the country's many ethnic minorities. Key among them -- Can these traditional cultures endure the dizzying pace of change.

KUER's Doug Fabrizio has been traveling in China's Yunnan province, and he's collected stories from some of these cultures on the edge. Doug sent us this story from the Tibetan plateau.
