The Chuanqing people (Chinese: 穿青人; pinyin: Chuānqīngrén) are an East Asian ethnic group. According to popular ethnogenesis, they are descended from Han Chinese soldiers who were sent to Guizhou area in the eighth and ninth centuries to quell Miao rebellions. The Chuanqings, however, view themselves as a distinct ethnic group.[1] Most of them live in the Anshun area of Guizhou province. Other locals call the Chuanqings "Da Jiao Ban" (Big Foot) or "Da Xiuzi" (Big Sleeves). They have a unique spirituality involving worship of a god called Wuxian (五显).[1]


Their name, Chuanqing, literally means wear-blacks because that is the colour of their traditional clothing.[1]

The Liupanshui City Ethnic Gazetteer (2003:178)[2] lists the following names for the Chuanqing people of Liupanshui prefecture.

The Chuanqing are also given various exonyms by the following ethnic groups.[2]


The Chuanqing are believed to number about 700,000, mostly in mountain villages in and around Zhijin.[1]

The Liupanshui City Ethnic Gazetteer (2003:178)[2] lists populations for the following counties in Liupanshui prefecture.


The Chuanqing speak a Sinitic language. Their language typically has a subject-objective-verb word order.[2]
