  视频文本(Script of the video):

  我们这个刀梯

  This ladder of knives

  它有讲究36把刀

  is special with 36 knives.

  这36把刀是关于

  The 36 knives are related to

  苗族的神话故事

  a fairy tale of Miao nationality.

  像伏羲女娲的故事

  Just like myth about our earliest ancestors Fuxi and Nuwa,

  苗族也有这个繁衍人类传说

  Miao nationality also has the tale about human reproduction.

  是天神斗争的时候

  It was originated from fighting with deities.

  我们苗族始祖

  Our earliest ancestor of Miao nationality

  就上天与雷神斗争

  Needed to fight with God of Thunder in the sky.

  因为毕竟是凡人

  But as a man

  是上不了天的

  He couldn’t fly into the sky.

  他就架了个天梯

  He set a ladder

  就是过了36道关

  But overcame 36 checkpoints.

  这个神话故事盛行于我们湘西

  This tale prevails in Xiangxi (western Hunan).

  所以上刀梯在湘西比较普遍

  Thus climbing this ladder is common here.

  我来自贵州

  I come from Guizhou province.

  我叫吴红仙

  My name is Wu Hongxian.

  今年24岁

  24-year-old.

  我是2012年进入这个行业的

  I have done this business since 2012.

  训练了2年后才正式开始工作

  I start work after two years’ training.

  (上刀梯)也是锻炼自己的胆量吧

  Climbing such ladder is to practice my boldness.

  表演也是可以更加地推广

  My performance can also further promote

  我们苗族民族文化的传统

  Traditional culture of Miao nationality

  让游客朋友更加了解(我们湘西)

  Let tourists know more about Xiangxi.

  (上刀梯)危险度还是有的

  Climbing the ladder is surely dangerous.

  首先心理素质必须要好一点

  Good psychological quality is a must.

  还有就是心要静

  A calm mind is required.

  不能分心

  No distraction.

  必须得专心一点

  Concentrate on performance.

  比如你上去了不能东张西望

  You cannot look around

  不专心

  Or absent-minded.

  每次表演完,吴红仙都会给家里打电话报平安

  After each performance, Wu will call home to report safety.

  妈妈Mom,

  刚才我表演完了

  I just finished my performance.

  今年是我们湘西建州60周年大庆

  The year 2017 is the 60thbirthday of Xiangxi.

  我祝全州人民身体健康

  I wish all Xiangxi people enjoy good health

  越来越好

  Live a better life.
