Tang Chinese can refer to the following:

  • The Tang dynasty of imperial China.
  • The term (Chinese: ; pinyin: Tángrén; Jyutping: tong4jan4), Tang Chinese or Tang People, that many southern Chinese, mainly the Cantonese (Tong Yan), Min Nan (Teng Lang) and Hakka people (Tong Ngin), use to refer to the Han Chinese ethnic group. It is in essence, another word for Han Chinese. Since the Han and Tang dynasties are considered to be the high points of Chinese civilization, the Chinese would refer to themselves as either Han or Tang.
