  1. Di

    The Di were an ethnic group in ancient China. They were one of the Wu Hu that overran northern China during the Jin Dynasty and the Sixteen Kingdoms period. Note that the character 氐 is different from 狄, which refers to the Northern Di, an unrelated ethnic group living in northern China during the earlier Zhou Dynasty. The Di lived in areas of the present-day provinces of Gansu, Qinghai, Sichuan and Shaanxi. During the 4th and early 5th centuries, they established Former Qin and Later Liang states of that era's Sixteen Kingdoms. They were traditional horse animal husbandry nomads, semi-nomadic shepherds, and goatherds living on the Tibet/Sichuan frontier. The Di were eventually assimilated into other populations. The modern Baima people living in southeast Gansu and northwest Sichuan may be descended from the Di.
