With a population of 1.3 billion and counting, China constitutes just under 20% of the world's inhabitants. Making up the vast majority of residents (91.59%) are the ubiquitous Han, leaving just a little over 8% to the 56 ethnic minorities officially recognized by the People's Republic. In Minority Report, we explore the colorful characters, customs and cultures of these fascinating peripheral groups. >>> Beneath the bourgeois society that is slowly making Sanya its home away from home toil the original settlers and cultivators of the land, the native Li people. They drive the Chinese tuk-tuks, they grill the seafood, they sell the smokes out of little corner shops, and the alleys of downtown Sanya are filled with the multi-toned inflections of their Cantonese-influenced native speech. They also chew betel nuts, chill out in hammocks beneath palm trees, and love to sip on wine-laced fruit juice and swap lies about the fish they caught that morning. The Li are island folk and have been so for 3,000-some years, even if they do originally hail from Fujian and Guangdong.
