Zhuang women, the largest ethnic minority group in China, prepare to perform traditional dances in Daxin's Shangjia village, Guangxi province, on July 3, 2009. The degree of integration of ethnic minorities with China's national mainstream community varies widely from group to group. With some groups, such as the Tibetans and the Uyghurs, there is tense resentment against the majority Han. Other groups such as the Zhuang, Manchu, Hui, and Koreans are well integrated into the national community. (UPI Photo/Stephen Shaver)
