 YUNNAN  Minority Culture 

Minority Culture (by Jim Goodman) 

However charming and traditional such sights are , though , they are not Yunnan main draw . rather , it is the ethnic mosaic . Over 12 million of the people belong to one branch or another of 24 different minority nationalities , comprising melange in the region . Racially and linguistically , the majority are Tibet-Burman peoples , such as the Yi ( the most numerous , but divided into over 25 sub-groups ) Hans , Naxi , Jingpo , Tibetan , Lahu
, Lisu , and so on . Dai and their ethnic cousins the Zhuang inhabit the south , Miao and Yao the southeast hills , Wa and Bulang-Mon-Khmer people-the southern jungles . A people somewhat apart the Bai-live in the old Nanzhao domain , while the Hui , left over from Kublai Khan conquering armies , inhabit various parts of the province . A contingent of residual Mongols , with a much altered lifestyle , occupy a few villages near Tonghai , in central Yunnan .
A great variety of lifestyle haracterises minority culture , for different nationalities inhabits diverse environments . In the southern prefectures basically two material cultures exist-that of rice-growers in the plains (Dali,Han,zhuang) and tea or dry rice cultivators in the forested hills ,(Hani , Lahu , Jinuo , Wa , Jinpo) , some of whom still practise slash-and-burn agriculture . The usual house is made of wood and split bamboo , raised on stilts .
