Over 600 people of the Baiku Yao ethnic group moved into new housing on February 6, after relocating from their former homes deep in mountainous areas.
The Baiku Yao nationality is a branch of the Yao minority. They mostly dwell in Nandan County, South China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
Due to their primitive way of life, Baiku Yao people have previously been called "living fossils of human civilization" by UNESCO.
Nowadays, the people of the distinctive group are moving forward and making greater progress.
