This paper focuses on the politics of religious space and hybridized cultural identity in the reconstruction of Miao ethnicity in China. It is argued that translocal flows of cultural resources should be taken into account in order to investigate the ongoing production and changing political connotations of hybridized cultural identities in heterogeneous time–spaces. It suggests that the creative use of translocally constituted hybridity is an act of resistance which negotiates hegemonic ideologies undergirding cultural dominance
