Occupation?Edit

I am perplexed that nearly every word about the occupation and indepence movement has been microedited away from this article. nice work chinese goverment. Crass Spektakel (talk) 23:49, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

Order of names in the info-box on the rightEdit

Why is the Chinese/Hanzi on the TOP and Tibetan/Bodyig on the BOTTOM?

Switch Tibet to the top, especially considering this is about the cultural area of Tibet and not the Chinese-controlled autonomous region of Xizang. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 137.54.5.25 (talk) 18:30, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

It's because the template we're using is Template:Infobox Chinese. We could switch to using Template:Tibetan-Chinese-box and the order would flip. I think the only thing we would lose would be the non-Mandarin Chinese pronunciations. – Greg Pandatshang (talk) 01:19, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

add areaEdit

The area covers the Tibet Autonomous Region and Qinghai Province, one-fifth of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, one-third of Gansu Province, two-thirds of Sichuan Province and one-fourth of Yunnan Province, spanning about 2.4 million sq km and nearly a quarter of China's territory.

The Dalai Lama has advocated a "high degree of autonomy" for Tibet in such a geographic scope and made it a preliminary condition for any negotiation with the central government. But such an idea is totally absurd for three major reasons. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Callofworld (talkcontribs) 08:46, 4 March 2017 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 18 September 2017Edit

Below change "asuzerainty" to "a suzerainty"

The Tibetan Empire emerged in the 7th century, but with the fall of the empire the region soon divided into a variety of territories. The bulk of western and central Tibet (Ü-Tsang) was often at least nominally unified under a series of Tibetan governments in Lhasa, Shigatse, or nearby locations; these governments were at various times under Mongol and Chinese overlordship. Thus Tibet remained asuzerainty of the Mongol and later Chinese rulers in Nanjing and Beijing, with reasonable autonomy given to the Tibetan leaders.[2] The eastern regions of Kham and Amdo often maintained a more decentralized indigenous political structure, being divided among a number of small principalities and tribal groups, while also often falling more directly under Chinese rule after the Battle of Chamdo; most of this area was eventually incorporated into the Chinese provinces of Sichuan and Qinghai. The current borders of Tibet were generally established in the 18th century.[3] Kai DeLorenzo (talk) 18:58, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

Golf in TibetEdit

According to this link:[[1]] Hilton Hotel has opened a new resort that includes the first golf course in Tibet. Hilton recently opened the Hilton Linzhi Resort, between the Himalayas and the Yarlung Zangbo River, on 800 acres at an elevation of about 9,800 feet. The article states that this is the first golf course in Tibet. But if memory serves, there was golf in Tibet in the 1970s; as attested by a notable documentary that I saw when I was living in Germany in 1980, Wahnsinn ohne Handicap. Any clarifications would help. 192.40.24.4 (talk) 13:47, 20 September 2017 (UTC)Shandafirdie

"Prospective/perspective"Edit

I'd like to correct the incorrect English "from a spiritual prospective" to "from a spiritual perspective", but for some reason there's no editing function in the main article, so I can't. I'm making the comment here in the hope that someone with better technological skills can make the change for me.213.127.210.95 (talk) 18:42, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for spotting that, I have made the correction. The article is protected from editing by anonymous editors at the moment, because of previous vandalism. DuncanHill (talk) 01:30, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

Misquoted text in Tibet article section titled "From 1950 to present"Edit

Current text: During the Great Leap Forward, between 200,000 and 1,000,000 Tibetans were murdered by Chinese military [62]

This should be changed to read: During the Great Leap Forward, between 200,000 and 1,000,000 Tibetans may have died[62]

note 62 cites "World Directory of Minorities and Indigenous Peoples – China : Tibetans". Minority Rights Group International. July 2008. Archived from the original on November 1, 2014. Retrieved April 23, 2014. The actual text from "World Directory of Minorities and Indigenous Peoples - China : Tibetans" at https://www.refworld.org/docid/49749d3dc.html says:

"Land reforms and the loss of the lamas' traditional power led first to unrest in eastern Kham and Amdo in the mid-1950s. The Great Leap Forward period (during which anywhere between 200,000 and 1 million Tibetans may have died) was also one during which there was growing disdain shown by Chinese authorities to the traditional Tibetan religious and political leaders such as the Dalai Lama." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.10.245.11 (talk) 20:27, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
