 Ethnic minorities in China - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In addition to these officially recognized ethnic minority groups, there are PRC nationals who privately classify themselves as members of unrecognized ethnic groups (such as Jewish, Tuvan, Oirat and Ili Turki).
Ethnic minorities are well represented in the National People's Congress as well as governments at the provincial and perfectural levels.
The "regional autonomies" are also to protect ethnic minorities' freedom of religion, however, the issue of freedom of religion in the PRC is, in itself, highly controversial and debatable.

 BVOM.COM - Vietnam Ethnic Features
Although they speak different languages, the ethnic groups live close to one another and so one group can know the language of others through everyday relations, and although they are involved in cultural exchange, they keep retaining the identity of their own culture.
The diversity of the cultures of ethnic groups does not take them off the track of the common development of the nation, just as the peculiarity is in tune with the generality in the dual category of philosophy.
As a result of the successful promulgation of the Party policy on ethnic groups, people of various ethnic groups who have been working together in the cause of national construction and defence are strengthening their solidarity still further for the sake of national development.

 List of past ethnic groups - China History Forum, chinese history forum
Here is a list of the past ethnic groups that have sinicized or assimilated into Chinese culture/society.
Miao, for example, is clearly recognized as an official Chinese ethnic group by the PRC government.
This website is claiming that these ethnic groups were "assimilated" into Chinese culture and Sinicized but in reality, most, if not all with the exception of Manchus, are distinct non-Han ethnic groups still in existance today and are recognized by the PRC government or have "evolved" into another ethnic group.

The purpose of this list is to record the tribe, caste, family line or regional grouping from which the person comes.
While Micro-thesaurus 13: Ethnic Groups, contains a list of major ethnic groups world-wide, organisations which work mainly on one country or region may want to compile a list of tribes, castes, family line or regional groupings of relevance for their work, so that entries are consistent.
It is recommended that organisations check whether there are official lists of groups, and verify whether these lists are correct and relevant for their work.

 ethnicity ethnic groups
Ethnicity is the cultural characteristics that connect a particular group or groups of people to each other.
"Ethnicity" is sometimes used as a euphemism for "race", or as a synonym for minority group.

A certain list was about men of violence, such as murderer, killer, and mugger.
This list was presented before a list of ethnic groups, such as Swedish American, Arab American, and Korean American.
The missing word was "African American." There are theoretical reasons why preceding the ethnic groups list with the violent-men list would increase the number of "reality monitoring" errors of falsely listing "African American" (which was not on the ethnic groups list).
