Zhuang

Redirected from Zhuang people

The Zhuang people are a minority people who mostly live in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in southern China. Their population is estimated at 18 million people.

The Zhuang live in Yunnan, Guangdong, Guizhou and Hunan provinces.

There is an indigenous Zhuang language[?], which was formerly written in Chinese characters, but now is usually written in Roman letters, as with Vietnamese (Guanxi borders Vietnam).

Most Zhuang follow a traditional animist/ancestor-oriented religion, however, there are a number of Christians, Buddhists, and Muslims in Guanxi as well.
