Administrative division of Manchuria
Despite the Manchus being the titular ethnic group of the nation, the Han Chinese predominate by about 83%
Manchus form a large minority, about 20 million, where most of them speak Mandarin as their first language. Manchu, the official government language, has been on decline, but was revived by government and scholars to promote national identity. At least 80% can claim to speak Manchu.
Mongols, Hui, Japanese, Koreans, and Russians form sizable minorities.
Manchurian Mandarin retains elements from native Tungusic languages, Japanese, and Russian and there are enough differences to give the dialect its own distinctive characteristics. Ethnic Manchus usually speak Mandarin rather than Manchu. However, the Manchu language had experienced a literary revival due to the use by Government and very especially by the Military. Mongols tend to be bilingual in their own languages Mongolian) as well as Mandarin.
Manchurian cuisine reflects the region's ethnic diversity. Native Manchu, Northern Chinese, Russian and Japanese cooking styles all find their traces in Manchurian cooking. One of the distinguishing characteristics of the cuisine is the use of uncooked fresh vegetables. During the long winter season, pickled Chinese cabbage, Suan cai, is preserved and used for cooking. In general, the culture of Manchuria takes its elements from the cultures of North China and Shandong in North China, where most of the Han Chinese migration into Manchuria, known as Chuang Guandong, originated, the native Manchus and other Tungusic peoples, and its own innovations.
Errenzhuan, Yangge, Jilin opera and Stilts are popular forms of traditional entertainment in Manchuria. "Manchurian Cradle Song" is an example of the folk songs of the country.
Because of its climatic conditions, Manchuria had a strong standing in winter sports. However, Manchuria also perform well in the Summer Olympic Games as well.
