Manchuria is a region often neglected in the circumpolar context because of its political adherence to China. In this paper, the author shows that a considerable part of the ethnic groups today living in Manchuria are closely associated with the rest of the circumpolar populations. Also, the problems of language endangerment and ethnic survival in Manchuria are similar to those encountered elsewhere in the North. There are, however, also specific problems and possible solutions peculiar to China.
