Origins of Tajiks in China (Xinjiang)
Posted 01 October 2008 - 02:35 AM
Does anyone know the historical origin of Tajiks in China? I heard that many migrated from central asia (Tajikstan) to Xinjiang during Tang period. Was this true?
Any contribution of their history would be appreciated.

Within Tajikistan they have their own autonomous areas that border China.
They are related to Tajiks but not Tajiks.

Many "Tajiks" in China also speak the Uyghur language as a second language, however.

All I know is that the Tajiks in China were turkic people (but many looked like Afghanistans). They inhabited mostly in Xinjiang province (home to large number of turkic ethnicities in China), within the region of kashgar.
Tajiks is not Turkic people. They are Indo-Aryan people including Iranian, Afghans and Tajiks.
