"...every culture is unique..."

Are they aware of that in the CPC? Why don't they PROTECT the cul ...

I have been following a travel series, entitled: " On The Way" on CCTV4. Those reporters were often have to recruit the help of a local as interpreter to the villages they visited as most of those locals don't speak Mandarin. I hope those reporters involved in the series can come out to vouch for that.

Chinese culture itself is very nice.So why not cherish and expand our chinese culture.

the best way to protect culture is to create it, such that people want it. I wonder what Hu's point is.

I agree with President Hu and share his concerns on the displacement of Chinese culture by western i ...
To have that eroded by the passing fashions of crassly commercialized western fancies and flavors of the day is like crumbling an ancient, priceless and irreplaceable archaeological find by primitive handling or through neglect.


and yet that is exactly what Mao did and what property developers have done all over china. Give me a break.

China is a unitary multiethnic nation made up of 56 different peoples. Because the Han account for 91.6% of the population, the other 55 are customarily referred to as "ethnic minorities". According to the fifth national census in 2000, 18 minority peoples have populations of over one million, namely the Zhuang, Manchu, Hui, Miao, Uygur, Yi, Tujia, Mongol, Tibetan, Bouyei, Dong, Yao, Korean, Bai, Hani, Li, Kazak, and Dai; of these, the Zhuang has the biggest population, numbering 16.179 million. There are 17 groups with a population of between 100,000 and one million, namely the She, Lisu, Gelao, Lahu, Dongxiang, Va, Sui, Naxi, Qiang, Tu, Xibe, Mulam, Kirgiz, Daur, Jingpo, Salar, and Maonan. The other 20 minority populations number between 10,000 and 100,000, namely, the Blang, Tajik, Primi, Achang, Nu, Ewenki, Gin, Jino, De'ang, Uzbek, Russian, Yugur, Bonan, Monba, Oroqen, Derung, Tatar, Hezhen, Gaoshan (excluding the Gaoshan population in Taiwan), and Lhoba. The Lhoba community has the smallest population, only about 3,000.

Ethnic intangible heritages show wraps up   

2010-04-01 09:17 BJT

The month long show of Chinese ethnic intangible heritages has wrapped up in Beijing. The show featured mixed performances of cultural legacies from more than a dozen ethnic groups in China.

The divine setting and drum dance brought by Jinuo people opened the heritage show. Jinuo is an ethnic group living in Yunnan province, with a small population of only 20-thousand. The big drum on the center stage symbolizes sun, a totem worshipped by the people since ancient times. The dancers are commemorating ancestors, praying for blessing, and warding off evil.


The month long show of Chinese ethnic intangible heritages has wrapped up in
Beijing. The show featured mixed performances of cultural legacies from more
than a dozen ethnic groups in China.


The closing show of the month-long ethnic heritage performances in Beijing was truly a grand finale. It was a concentration of the essence from performances over the past month. Highlights included singing from a sister and brother duo of the Yi minority, and young girls and boys from the Zhuang minority singing in opposite groups, flirting in a kind of question-and-answer format.

Ethnic flavor from all over China was encapsulated into the show. Kyrgyz people from Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region sang and danced accompanied by their traditional instruments. There was a Qiang minority dance, the lyrical long song and Humai from the Mongolian ethnic people, the vibrant and enthusiastic Tibetan dance, and a Korean farming dance. Also, Uygur people played the Muqam, an indigenous folk instrument, and the Hui minority presented a folk song called "Hua'er", which literarily means "flower".

Over the past month, more than twenty ethnic groups displayed their intangible cultural heritage, mainly through songs and dances, here in the capital city.

let's get one thing really straight here - China is 93% Han

divide the remaining 56 minorities into 7.

and minority in China is not the same as minority in the West. The minorities in the West are from distant lands and entirely different people, from all over the world.

I've heard the mulltiethnic line before from China, but it is not the same construct at all
