Dongba Culture has been a most favorite subject for research in the field of minority studies nowadays. However, there’s still lack of research into the life and scriptures of Dongbas who are the founders and successors of Dongba culture. Therefore, this paper is undertaken to investigate into the life and scriptures of two famous Dongbas: He Shijun and He Wenzhi.

This paper is divided into three parts: first, the life of the two Dongbas is introduced,based on previous studies and field research as well as interviews; second, the scriptures of these two Dongbas in the book An Annotated Collection of Naxi Dongba Manuscripts are discriminated through signatures, handwriting, postscript, etc.; third, the characteristics of their scriptures during different periods are studied through comparing with scriptures copied by other Dongbas in terms of handwriting, contents and so on so as to discover the historical changes of Dongba scriptures.
