The Mountain People – Ethnic Teng
AbstractThe Teng people are an ethnic group who live in the boundary area of Tibet. For various reasons, the survey of ethnic minorities in China, conducted in the 1950s, excluded the Teng people. Nevertheless, the products, the lifestyle and even the culture of the Teng people are unique amongst ethnic Tibetan, Moinpa and Lhopa. They are, therefore, named as the “Teng people”.Like other minorities in the Chinese nation, the Teng people have a rich culture with a tradition of fascinating legends, folklore and customs-all of which reveal the glory of their exclusive culture throughout its lengthy part in human history.
