Chinese Ethnic Scene

A multiracial country, China is home to 56 ethnic peoples. The Hans account for 90 percent of the total population, while the other 55 ethnic peoples are known as minorities for their small populations. All the ethnic groups are equal regardless of population size. The state protects the lawful rights and interests of ethnic minorities, maintains and promotes equality, unity and mutual help between them. Ethnic autonomy has been instituted in regions, prefectures, counties and townships where minority peoples live in compact communities. Geographically speaking, the Hans are all over the country, but most of them are in east and central China. In frontier regions, they mingle with other ethnic groups. Most ethnic minority peoples live in southwest, northwest and northeast China.
