China has 52 ethnic minority groups that are distinct from the Han majority. Many of these groups can be found in the more remote areas of China. The Miao can be found in South-West China and belong to the wider Hmong peoples found in the mountain ranges that stretch from the Tibeto-Burmese mountains, Myanmar through to coastal Vietnam. The Miao groups found in Guizhou retain a rich cultural heritage with diverse characteristics between villages, some of which are explored in this series.
