Hui

 

a people in the People’s Republic of China. Most of the Hui speak northern dialects of the Chinese language. The people consists of two groups of different origins: the northern (the Chinese Dungans) and the southern. They live in the Ningsia Hui and Sinkiang-Uighur autonomous regions, in the Chinese provinces of Kansu, Tsinghai, Shensi, and Honan, and in various large cities.

The Hui, who number approximately 5 million (1975, estimate), are Sunni Muslims. They engage primarily in farming, livestock and poultry raising, and the transshipment of freight. In urban areas the Hui are active in trading and handicrafts.
