Abstract
Folklore is not always static, and the body constantly participates in the adaption in the process of displaying, remembering, and inventing folklore. The body helps folklore individuals adapt to the surrounding environment and seek group identity. The body is not only the target of folk disciplines, but also a distinctive symbol that expresses the value and significance of existence. The effectiveness and adaptability of folk life are manifested in the use and carrying of the body. After migrating from China, Dungan people became a multi-dimensional carrier who has an inherited traditions and new invented traditions in the exotic cultural space. The change of folk life can be found in the process of constructing the expression of its own body.
