Or, just as likely, the same route that the Native Americans of Northern America, or the Aborigines of Australia, or... have.
The Australian Aborigines and American Indians were utterly defeated. More recently some
of them have begun essentially following their own paths again (once the oppressors quit kidnapping and brainwashing them - imagine that).
Some of the tribes in Central America retreated into the jungle and have essentially created their own societies. The Chinese will not permit the Tibetans to do this.

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
