The people of Bhutan are known as Bhutanese. There are three major ethnic groups: the Bhutia (also Bhotia, or Bhote), comprising roughly 50 percent of the population; the Nepalese, accounting for another 35 percent; and the Assamese, making up 15 percent. Small numbers of aboriginal (native) people live in villages scattered throughout Bhutan. For more information on the Nepalese, consult the chapter on Nepal in Volume 6.
