Chinese 56 Ethnic Groups

There are 56 ethnic groups in China, of these Han is the only great majority.  The images of this Chinese 56 Ethnic Groups collection came from many sources, which include images of Chinese stamps issued as a Special Stamp Collection on the 56 Chinese Ethnic Groups in Beijing by the China Stamp Collection Co. in 2004, some personal images taken from various museums including the Minority Collection at the Shanghai Museum, as well as some from book publications with their permission, such as China's Ethnic Minorities edited by Peijin Lan, published by the Foreign Public Press in Beijing in 2003.

All the sources are properly indicated, and "right" information are carefully documented.  Global Memory Net is grateful to have their permissions to include their images here.
