The religious belief of the Maonan is mainly Daoist, though with some Buddhist influence, as well. Maonan Daoist priests mainly conduct rituals to deliver the dead soul. When the Maonan or their livestock are unwell, they hire Daoists to conduct rituals to pacify the dragon and thank the earth. At that time they will hang up pictures of Daoist gods like the Celestial Master, the City God ( 城隍 Chenghuang ) and the Stove God ( 灶王 Zaowang ).
