Summary
For many different reasons-perhaps because of ignorance or long-standing cultural and political barriers-China is often viewed by outsiders as a homogeneous nation. Such erroneous views are slowly giving way to greater awareness of the country's myriad minority populations. This program introduces viewers to the 55 officially recognized minority groups of China as many of their members gather to celebrate their diversity and preserve their ways in a dazzling display of sport and cultural pride.
