    The Salar people

    The Salars are an Oghuz-speaking Muslim Turkic minority of China. They are thought to be descended (at least partly) from a group of the Salur tribe who migrated from Transoxiana to China according to Salar tradition. They live mostly in the Qinghai-Gansu border region.

    They are represented on Global25 and appear heavily mixed with Sino-Tibetans, although the quickly made models below are far from being perfect.


    I tried modeling them with different combination of populations.

    Medieval Turkic (KAZ_Karluk, KAZ_Karakhanid, KAZ_Kimak) + Han_Shanxi (geographically the closest Han population to Salars on G25's list)

    Target: Salar
    Distance: 1.7032% / 0.01703195
    71.0 Han_Shanxi
    29.0 KAZ_Karluk

    Target: Salar
    Distance: 2.1837% / 0.02183697
    69.6 Han_Shanxi
    30.4 KAZ_Karakhanid

    Target: Salar
    Distance: 2.6367% / 0.02636670
    73.8 Han_Shanxi
    26.2 KAZ_Kimak



    Medieval Turkic (KAZ_Karluk, KAZ_Karakhanid, KAZ_Kimak) + Han_Shanxi + Tibetan_Gangcha

    Target: Salar
    Distance: 1.6762% / 0.01676247
    65.8 Han_Shanxi
    28.0 KAZ_Karluk

    Distance: 2.1598% / 0.02159786
    64.2 Han_Shanxi
    29.2 KAZ_Karakhanid
    6.6 Tibetan_Gangcha

    Target: Salar
    Distance: 2.5324% / 0.02532407
    61.0 Han_Shanxi
    23.8 KAZ_Kimak

    They are closest to Dongxiang and Bonan (Muslim Mongolic minorities) and Dungan (Muslim Sinitic people of Hui origin), which indicates a practice of intermarriage between these Turkic, Mongolic and Sinitic Muslims.

    Wow, wasn't expecting Yugur to be modeled as ~85% "Guangdong Han" and ~10% "Nganassan". Really goes to show how genetically distant the Russian Far North is from Continental East Asia.

    It's rather a mixture.
