China's Minority Peoples - The Uzbeks
The Uzbeks, with a population of 12,453, live mostly side by side with the Uygur and Kazak peoples in the southern and northern parts of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. The Uzbeks derived from the Uzbek Kingdom of the Mongo¬lian Kipchak Khanate in the 14th century. When the Kipchak Khanate collapsed in the 15th century, Uzbek businessmen living in Samarkand, Khwarizm, Anjiyan and Bukhara came to sell their goods in the Central Plains of China along the Silk Road by way of Xinjiang. Later, some of these businessmen settled down in several towns of Xinjiang and formed the Uzbek people of China.
