Tibet is a non-homogeneous country. Even in the Tibetan Autonomous Region you will find non-Tibetan tribes such as Menba, Loba, Drung, Xiaerba and others. Historically, Tibet ranged from the southern part of present Tibet Autonomous Region, and expanded to the north, including Qinghai, Sichuan and Gansu, conquering and assimilated the native people and tribes of those lands, including at least a half million Han people. The original tribal system of southern Tibet evaporated during the rule of the Tubo dynasty. Since the collapse of the Tubo dynasty in the 9th century, many assimilated people reverted to the tribal systems for survival. There were some local kingdoms established by these tribes. For instance, Xixia was established 1,000 years ago at the Gansu. According to one modern analysis, the languages of Xixia and Tibetan are only 25 % coincidental for the key words. After culture exchanges of the last 1,100 years, today the tribal people are considered Tibetan.
