Winter in the Chinese Altay

Xinjiang (Altay), a country in a country. Many provinces in China are similar to this model, namely a strong independence and its own culture. But Xinjiang is particularly unique because of its strong ethnic mix. This region has no less than 7 common borders and is at the center of the complex history that shaped Central Asia over the last two millennia. Today, the result is an extraordinary pluriculturalism that directly bears witness to the various population movements.
Northern China is a historically complex place and still today politically. This journey into the far north of China plunges us back in, as if caught up in the past. This region locally holds several ethnicities with certain languages ​​that we will not necessarily find in the city next door.

Thibaut Marot's journey begins in the city of Urumqi, the largest city in Xinjiang but a small town on the scale of Chinese territory. In Buerqin there are already more Kazakhes and pushing all the way north to the village of Hému, close to the Mongolian border, there are no less than 4 ethnic groups: the Hans, the Kazaks, the Mongols and the Tuvas (that it is found only in 3 villages). Genghis Khan would have left these in the region leaving China ...
So here we are in Hému in the far north of Xinjiang in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. However since 1949, this territory is no longer so autumn and is firmly in the hands of the Pekingese power. The political and interethnic tensions are less increased than in recent decades but the military presence even in this small mountain village and the surveillance cameras remind us where we put our feet ...
