After the Qing dynasty collapsed, the Manchu language lost its status as a national language and its official use in education ended. Manchus today generally speak Standard Chinese. The remaining skilled native Manchu speakers number less than ,  most of whom are to be found in Sanjiazi Manchu: The Qing dynasty is mistakenly confused as a nomadic empire by people who wrongly think that the Manchus were a nomadic people,  when in fact the Manchus were a sedentary agricultural people who lived in fixed villages, farmed crops, practiced hunting and mounted archery.
The history of Manchu family names is quite long. Fundamentally, it succeeds the Jurchen family name of the Jin dynasty. A Manchu family name usually has two portions: There were stories of Han migrating to the Jurchens and assimilating into Manchu Jurchen society and Nikan Wailan may have been an example of this. Manchus given names are distinctive. Generally, there are several forms, such as bearing suffixes "-ngga", "-ngge" or "-nggo", meaning "having the quality of";  bearing Mongol style suffixes "-tai" or "-tu", meaning "having";   bearing the suffix, "-ju", "-boo";  numerals [note 9]   or animal names [note 10].
Review of The Manchus, by Pamela Kyle Crossley | Eras Journal
Some ethnic names can also be a given name of the Manchus. One of the common first name for the Manchus is Nikan Han Chinese. Nowadays, Manchus primarily use Chinese family and given names, but some still use a Manchu family name and Chinese given name, [note 11] a Chinese family name and Manchu given name [note 12] or both Manchu family and given names. The Jurchens and their Manchu descendants originally practiced cremation as part of their culture.
They adopted the practice of burial from the Han Chinese, but many Manchus continued to cremate their dead. The early phase of Manchu clothing succeeded from Jurchen tradition. White was the dominating color. Manchus have many distinctive traditional accessories. Women traditionally wear three earrings on each ear,  a tradition that is maintained by many older Manchu women.
After the establishment of the Qing dynasty in , the fergetun gradually became simply a form of jewelry, with the most valuable ones made in jade and ivory. Riding and archery Manchu: They were well-trained horsemen from their teenage  years. Huangtaiji said, "Riding and archery are the most important martial arts of our country". Their test results could even affect their rank in the nobility.
From the middle period of the Qing dynasty, archery became more a form of entertainment in the form of games such as hunting swans, shooting fabric or silk target. The most difficult is shooting a candle hanging in the air at night. It was common to see Manchus putting signs in front of their houses to invite challenges.
By the Chongde period, Manchus had developed their own well-trained wrestlers  and, a century later, in the Qianlong period, they surpassed Mongol wrestlers. Manchu wrestling moves can be found in today's Chinese wrestling, shuai jiao , which is its most important part. As a result of their hunting ancestry, Manchus are traditionally interested in falconry.
It was a big base of falconry. Compared to the falconry of Manchuria, it is more like an entertainment. They provided outstanding falcons to the emperor when he went to hunt every fall. The Qianlong Emperor called it a "national custom". In the s—s, there was a famous Manchu skater in Beijing whose name was Wu Tongxuan, from the Uya clan and one of the royal household skaters in Empress Dowager Cixi 's regency.
The Tale of the Nisan Shaman Manchu: Octagonal drum is a type of Manchu folk art that was very popular among bannermen, especially in Beijing. The drumhead is made by wyrmhide with tassels at the bottom.
One is the harpist; one is the clown who is responsible for harlequinade; and the third is the singer. After the fall of the Qing dynasty, the influence of the octagonal drum gradually reduced. However, the Chinese monochord  and crosstalk  which derived from octagonal are still popular in Chinese society and the new generations. Many famous Chinese monochord performers and crosstalkers were the artists of octagonal drum, such as De Shoushan and Zhang Sanlu. It has two main categories; one is popular folk literature such as the Tale of the Nisan Shaman , the other is from folk music with an informative and independent plot, and complete structure.
The religions of the Manchus are diverse. Originally, Manchus, and their predecessors, were principally Shamanists.
After the conquest of China in the 17th century, Manchus came into contact with Chinese culture. They were markedly influenced by Chinese folk religion and retained only some Shamanic customs. Buddhism and Christianity also had their impacts. Shamanism has a long history in Manchu civilization and influenced them tremendously over thousands of years. Apart from the Shamanic shrines in the Qing palace, no temples erected for worship of Manchu gods could be found in Beijing.
Jurchens, the predecessors of the Manchus, were influenced by the Buddhism of Balhae , Goryeo , Liao and Song in the 10—13th centuries,  so it was not something new to the rising Manchus in the 16—17th centuries. Qing emperors were always entitled "Buddha". The belief in the Buddhist faith by the Mongols was viewed with disdain and thought to be destructive to Mongol identity by Hong Taiji.
In private, Huangtaiji said "The Mongolian princes are abandoning the Mongolian language; their names are all in imitation of the lamas. In fact the terms "incorrigibles" and "liars" were used to describe Tibetan Buddhist Lamas by Hung Taiji;  however Huangtaiji patronized Buddhism in order to exploit the Tibetans' and Mongols' belief in the religion. The Qianlong Emperor 's faith in Tibetan Buddhism had been questioned in recent times because the emperor indicated that he supported the Yellow Church the Tibetan Buddhist Gelukpa sect just to "maintain peace among the Mongols" since the Mongols were followers of the Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama of the Yellow Church, and the Qianlong Emperor had this explanation placed in the Beijing Tibetan Buddhist Yonghe Gong temple on a stele entitled "Lama Shuo" on Lamas in , and he also said it was "merely in pursuance of "Our policy of extending Our affection to the weak," which led him to patronize the Yellow Church.
This explanation of only supporting the "Yellow Hats" Tibetan Buddhists for practical reasons was used to deflect Han criticism of this policy by the Qianlong Emperor, who had the "Lama Shuo" stele engraved in Tibetan, Mongol, Manchu and Chinese, which said: This being an important task, we cannot but protect this religion.
In doing so we do not show any bias, nor do we wish to adulate the Tibetan priests as was done during the Yuan dynasty. Manchus were affected by Chinese folk religions for most of the Qing dynasty. He was considered as the God Protector of the Nation and was sincerely worshipped by Manchus.

Uttering his name was taboo. The worship of Mongolian and Tibetan gods has also been reported. Influenced by the Jesuit missionaries in China, there was also a considerable amount of Manchu Catholics during Qing dynasty. His wife was also baptised and named "Maria". Manchus have many traditional holidays. The villagers who lived near the battlefield heard the emergency and came to help. There was no tableware on the battlefield. They had to use perilla leaves to wrap the rice. Afterwards, they won the battle. So later generations could remember this hardship, Nurhaci made this day the "Food Extermination Day".
Traditionally on this day, Manchu people eat perilla or cabbage wraps with rice, scrambled eggs, beef or pork. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see Manchu disambiguation.
