Lijiang ethnic groups (Hits:)

Lijiang City has a lot of nationalities, such as Naxi, Yi, Bai, Pumi and so on. The dominant local ethnic minority in Lijiang is Naxi, with many Yi and Bai in the area. The Naxi are reputedly 'matriarchal' and hence the subject of much interest among Chinese and foreign tourists, though what this means is subject to much dispute. Naxi are matrilineal, insofar as property is traditionally inherited down the female line, and men move into their wife's family home after marriage.
