With a population of 8.6 million, the Hui nationality is one of China's largest minority nationalities. The Hui people can be found in most of the provinces and cities throughout China, especially in the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, Gansu, Qinghai, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Yunnan, Henan, Hebei, Shangdong, Beijing, and Tianjing.

The name Hui is an abbreviation for "Huihui". The Hui people mainly developed from Islamic-oriented people, including Persians and Arabs who moved to China from Middle Asia during the thirteenth century, and in the course of development they took in people from a number of other nationalities, including the Han, Mongolian, and Uighur.

The Huis use the Han language. Hui culture is influenced by the traditional culture of Middle and Western Asia.
