1. Introduction

In recent years, in the country, revitalization strategy “prosperous industry, ecological livable, local custom civilization, effective governance (Yu De, 2019) [1] , rich life”, five concepts under the guidance, relevant state departments and Yun, Gui, Chuan three provincial government departments at all levels have formulated a number of policies and documents, accelerated the pace of rural revitalization, vigorously promoted rural revitalization in the southwest of fully deployed, Rural revitalization has become the main melody of rural development in today’s times. Here scholars have researched a lot about village’s development strategies based on the background of rural revitalization, but there are few researches on village development strategy in minority areas, therefore, based on the background of rural revitalization, this study starts from the rural planning and design problems of Jiajiagou Village, Puge County, Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province (He Renwei, 2018) [2] . Based on the analysis of its spatial texture, this study analyzes the current situation of its industrial development, infrastructure construction, cultural construction and other aspects in combination with the basic situation of the investigation (Liang Aiwen, 2018) [3] . Through various investigations and studies, the planning and design effects and existing problems of Jiajiagou Village are further interpreted, and targeted and effective suggestions are put forward to promote the development of Jiajiagou Village, so as to provide certain theoretical reference for the application of rural revitalization strategy in remote ethnic minority areas.
