For the last ten years only can "Mosuo" and "Pumi" people be properly called by their name, beforehand they were categorized as Tibetans. In the fifties, Chinese stalinian anthropologists decided to squiz more than 400 different ethnic groups into what is now the 56 official Chinese nationalities (the Han being one of them).
These two ethnic groups do follow Tibetan buddhism but have their own language and own songs. The Lugu Lake, at the border of Yunnan and Sichuan provinces, is the core of the Mosuo country. They used to have animist rituals before Tibetan buddhism took over.
