The Ngalop (Dzongkha: སྔ་ལོང་; Wylie: snga-long; "earliest risen" or "first converted" according to folk etymology)[1] are people of Tibetan origin who migrated to Bhutan as early as the ninth century. For this reason, they are often referred to in literature as "Bhote" (people of Bhotia/Bhutia or Tibet). The Ngalop introduced Tibetan culture and Buddhism to Bhutan and comprised the dominant political and cultural element in modern Bhutan. Furthermore, cultural, ethnic, and linguistic identity in Bhutan are not always mutually exclusive. For these reasons, Ngalops are often simply identified as Bhutanese. Their language, Dzongkha, is the national language and is descended from Old Tibetan. The Ngalop are dominant in western and northern Bhutan, including Thimphu and the Dzongkha-speaking region. The term Ngalop may subsume several related linguistic and cultural groups, such as the Kheng people and speakers of Bumthang language.[1][2][3] Orientalists historically called them the "Bhote," meaning they were from "Bhotia," or Tibet. This term was also applied to the Tibetan people, leading to confusion, and now is rarely used in reference to the Ngalop.
