About 18,500 persons (9.4% of the entire population) belong to ethnic minorites (Manchu, Hui, Daur, Oroqen etc.).[2]

Dawujia village, home of some of the last remaining native Manchu language speakers, is located in Aihui District.[]

History

The district's Aigun Town (, Aihun), and for more than two centuries since its founding in the 1680s was one of the most important towns of Northern Manchuria.

In 1913 Aigun became the county seat of the newly created Aigun County (, Aihun xian), which was in December 1956 renamed Aihui County (). On November 15, 1980, Heihe City was created, and on June 6, 1983, Aihui County was abolished, being merged into the Heihe City.[2]

To further complicate the situation, in 1993 the former Heihe City (a county-level administrative unit) was reorganized into Aihui District (also a county-level unit), while the former Heihe Prefecture (?) became Heihe Prefecture-level City (which consists of Aihui District and a number of counties).[2] This administrative division has been in effect ever since.
