Abstract: Minority national sport is a sincere cultural expression of minority nationalities. The development of mi-nority national sport embodies the inevitable demands of national regions for economic, social and cultural devel-opment in the new period. At present, for the development of minority national sport, we should stick to the sharing of ecology and subsistence in terms of meaning selection, observe the co-prosperity of rural areas and modern cities in terms of objective orientation, embody the harmonization and interaction between rural and urban areas in terms of development territories, fully exert the united power of civil organizations and the government in terms of im-plementation power, implement the supplementation of protection and development in terms of modes and ap-proaches, embody the joint power of economic effects and social effects in terms of effect evaluation, and abide by the principle for sports and cultural recognition in terms of development orientation attribution.
Key words: national sport；development of minority national sport；scientific understanding
