（ECNS) – In China, there are a few ethnic groups that haven't been officially recognized, and Chuanqing is one of them.
But on May 5, Guo Dan, a woman from the Chuanqing ethnic group, finally received her new ID card with her nationality on it.
"I feel proud of my ethnic identity," said Guo, who moved from Guizhou province to Danling county of Sichuan province after she married a local man.
As Chuanqing isn't among the official list of China's 56 ethnic groups, it has caused some registration problems for those belonging to the group. Some local authorities would ask Chuanqing people to fill in "Han" in the ethnicity column to avoid potential troubles, according to Guo.
Chuanqing people are mainly found in western Guizhou province, with a population of about 670,000. The Chinese government listed them as one of the unrecognized ethnic groups, even though historically, they are a Han subgroup.
Guo said except those who live in remote mountains, most Chuanqing people share the same culture and language with local Han nationality.
