It’s a common view in academia that most disabled people have a negative identity. However, presented long-term anthropological investigation, showed that disabled people had a very positive identity in Tibetan culture. This article describes the stories of two disabled Tibetan individuals using the narrative method. In reference to these cases, the local religion is analyzed, which is an important factor that deeply influences the identity of disabled Tibetans.
