Tang People (in Chinese: 唐人) originated from the Tang Dynasty (618-907 a. C.) and originally referred to the people of the Tang Dynasty. Since ancient times, western countries called China “Tang”. Following upon this denomination, overseas immigrants from China were commonly referred to as Tang People. It was only after the foundation of the People's Republic of China and due to the influence of Chinese nationalism that the term "Chinese" became widely used, and the term "Tang People” went out of fashion.
Nowadays, the Tang People are spread worldwide. Many of them often face discrimination because of their business expansion and existent cultural biases. Although most of them have no regrets of having moved abroad for the sake of a better life and education, they are often confronted with feelings of struggle and complexities.
