Ethnic Minority People in China

13 August 2006
 

The biggest ethnic group in China is Han Chinese, which consists of 92% of the population. Apart from Han Chinese who are responsible for the creation of the Chinese Culture that we know today, there are 55 minority ethnic groups, each having a distinctive culture of its own. Some of them have possessed rich cultural heritages, like Bai and Dongba people, others are relatively new, such as Manchus (who was originated from some Tartar tribes after the defeat of the Mongol empire).

Here are some young ladies from the minority groups in their traditional ethnic costumes.
