Uyghur Cluster – Profile
  • The Uyghur people are a Turkic ethnic group native to the Altay Mountains in Central Asia. Throughout their 4000-year history, the Uyghurs developed an advanced culture and played an important role in cultural exchanges along the Silk Road. During the 8th-19th centuries, the Uyghur empire was a dominant force in Central Asia.
  • Uyghur Muslims in China face religious restrictions, imprisonments, and executions. They complain that their cultural and religious traditions are being annihilated by oppressive government policies and practices. Since the 1950s, separatist organizations have actively worked toward declaring independence for the Uyghur people.
  • Uyghurs are predominately Sunni Muslims. Historically, Islam came to their region in the 10th century. Prior to Islam, the Uyghurs embraced Buddhism, Shamanism, and Manicheism.
