Abstract: Morale boosting in impoverished Yi regions is to bolster people's confidence and morale in poverty alleviation, thus help the poor to rid of spiritual poverty. A long-time lack of material well-being results in poor people's spiritual weakness . A popular mentality of dependence develops , and difficulties with morale boosting in Liangshan relates to bad habits in traditional minority culture . In the campaign to boost Yi people's morale in fighting poverty we should have a good understanding of Yi culture. First, we should focus on training basic-level bilingual cadres ; second , we should integrate poverty-fighting spirit into Yi language movies , music and murals ;third, we should make major Yi family laborers the targets for education and training. We should strengthen efforts to promote spiritual civilization construction of the poor, promote their initiatives, and consolidate their ideological foundation for fighting poverty and getting rich, and then preventing from lapsing into poverty again.
