Ethnic Towns in China
Ethnic towns in China are town-level administrative areas established in places where ethnic minorities live together. Towns with ethnic minorities accounting for more than 30% of the total population may apply for the establishment of ethnic towns in accordance with regulations; in special cases, the proportion may be slightly lower. The first ethnic town in China, Yichegashan Xibo Town(伊车嘎善锡伯族乡), Huocheng County, Yili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, was founded in November 1953.
