Part of an enormous mural in the Ethnic Museum at Minzu University showing the 55 recognized ethnic minorities in China. The Miao (see A Gathering of Miao and Welcome), with their beautiful silver headdresses and necklaces, are shown in the lower right of the image. I was told to put my camera away shortly after taking this picture. [NOTE: Non-Han Chinese are known as "nationalities"; the Chinese word for this is minzu (中华民族)]
