In the Pearl River delta in Guangdong, thanks to Tao Lu's military success and Chen Baisha's philosophy, the indigenous population was integrated into the Chinese state in the sixteenth century. The process was so successful that it gave rise to the impression that integration was a natural outcome of the extension of state authority. This chapter argues, however, that although the combination of state and local interests brought about the sinicization of the indigenous peoples in the Pearl River delta, in Guangxi province it kept the Yao indigenous.

Keywords:   Pearl River delta, Tao Lu, Chen Baisha, state authority, sinicization, Guangxi province
