Wow, and i thought there was only Chinese in China! lol, relax just joking
The first 55 of these "ethnic groups" combined account for only 8% of the chinese population. The rest being Han Chinese. The smallest groups have less than 10,000 surviving members.
And Yes, Tibet is in China, and the Chinese government currently have authority over it.
Tibet is in China?
This is a fabulous concept. The photographs are excellent (some are over exposed). Well done.
Details of the MANY ethnic groups living in today's China
This is really interesting, but I'm having a hard time getting into it when the pictures are so small. I can barely see their faces.
This is an exhaustive list??
There are two levels you can read this on:
"Oh wow, there's a lot of diversity in China" and
"Oh wow, the mainline Chinese attitude towards the ethnic minorities in that country is...interesting."
Also, Hmong (Miao) people have epic, epic headdresses.
Really makes you appreciate and rethink the term "Asian" and "Chinese".
Thanks "Spocko." This is a great find for anyone studying about China, their culture or language.
