Abstract: The dadou constructed with wooden boards is predominantly used as a traditional skill for threshing rice seeds in Miao tribe in Guizhou province, China, although the daguji, a modern device, has been introduced and developed into the area. The dadou device is well adapted and has several advantages in the traditional paddies under wet and rainy weather conditions of the area. The dazhen and occasionally the stone and broken-chair devices are utilized in the southwestern China with the cultivation of the rice cultivars with easy shattering habit. Historical and cultural significance of the dadou for the Miao tribe is discussed.
