Tungusic peoples are the peoples who speak Tungusic languages that belong to the Altaic languages. The word originated in Tunguska, an ill-defined region of Siberia.
The largest of the Tungusic peoples are the Manchu who are around 10,000,000 in number. They are originally from Northeast China (Manchuria), but since they conquered China in the 1600s, and especially during the 1900s, they have almost totally been assimilated into the main Han Chinese population of China, though are often still living in northern China.
