Referring to Populations

It is important to refer to this community as “Chinese Dai in Xishuangbanna, China” when describing these samples in articles or presentations. These samples were not necessarily drawn to be representative of all Dai Chinese people, nor of all people in China, where there are 56 officially recognized ethnicities. The population should not be described merely as “Asian” or as “East Asian”, terms that encompass many communities.
