Part II. Nabo through the Four Seasons

The dynasty ruled by the Khitan people, a nomadic culture focused on hunting culture, had the custom of Nabo throughout the four seasons. The emperors of Liao did not live in any of the five capitals but camped with the imperial court in different regions of his realm throughout the year. In addition to fishing, goose shooting, hunting, and keeping cool in summer, Nabo activities included praying to the heaven and rain, worshiping the mountains and ancestors, discussing state affairs, handling government affairs, receiving foreign envoys and tributes from tributary states and clans. Therefore, the ambulant political center of Liao moved with the camp of emperors.
