Affinity Bloc: Tibetan / Himalayan Peoples

Overview: Of the 90 million individuals who belong to the Tibetan family of peoples, most live as minorities in countries where they have no political power. Only in Bhutan and Myanmar do Tibetan peoples constitute a majority. Nevertheless, Tibetans and their Buddhist religion have a high profile worldwide.
