The Uyghurs are a Turkic ethnic group living in Eastern and Central Asia. Today, Uyghurs live primarily in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autnomous Region of China, where they are one of 55 officially recognized ethnic minorities.
Outside of China, significant diasporic communities of Uyghurs exist in the Central Asian countries of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan and in Turkey. Smaller communities can be found in Europe, Australia and North America. They are all united by their language, Uyghur, and their cultural background.
