Mapping Southeast China's Minorities

China's Yunnan Province is noted for a very high level of ethnic diversity. It has the second highest number of ethnic groups among the provinces and autonomous regions in China. Among the country's 56 officially recognised ethnic groups, twenty-five are found in Yunnan. According to Wikipedia, some 38 % of the province's population are members of minorities, including the Yi, Bai, Hani, Tai, Dai, Miao, Lisu, Hui, Lahu, Va, Nakhi, Yao, Tibetan, Jingpo, Blang, Pumi, Nu, Achang, Jinuo, Khatso, Derung, Manchu, Sui, and Buyei.
