Minority Information, To Date

by Jacqueline M. Newman

Resources

Spring Volume: 2015 Issue: 22(1) page(s): 36


Many have asked why so many articles about Chinese Minority Populations. One reason, there is little information about them in English. Another, many are larger than the populations of some countries. More important is what minorities were written about in Flavor and Fortune, and when?

According to the 2010 Chinese census, in decreasing order of each ethnic population, eighteen of these recognized groups had more than one million people each. In decreasing order, they are the Zhuang, Hui, Manchu, Uygur, Miao, Yi, Tujia, Tibetan, Mongol, Dong, Bouyei, Yao, Bai, Korean, Hani, Li, Kazak, and Dai.

They consider and call all people following Islam as Hui people; though most of them would disagree. In some countries, such as in the US, Chinese Miao are called Hmong.
