A Han Chinese People originally from North China, but now distributed in several southern provinces. The Hakka speak a dialect of the same name. Known for their "Tulou", an old type of round housing compound/fortification that can house a large number of people and withstanding earthquakes and sieges. The Hakka were not always welcomed wherever they went. In particular, the mid-19th Century saw clashes in Guangdong Province between incoming Hakka and local Cantonese, in what are now called the Punti-Hakka Clan Wars.
In Mandarin, Hakka is pronounced "Kejia". It sounds so different!

One of the most common languages alongside Cantonese and Min in South China, Hong Kong, and Macau. Hakka is also a somewhat common language that is spoken by the Chinese community in Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Being an off-spring with Sze Yap and Gan languages of the Chu state at which it was originated from the Yangtze River of South China, Hakka is a Miao-Yao language that was spoken by the Chu natives in its archaic form. Later, Hakka evolved to borrow a small percent of Han (Mandarin) words, Cantonese words, and Min words, as well as being written in Chinese characters alongside Mandarin, Cantonese, Min, and Wu for speakers to socialize with each other more effectively. Regardless, Hakka is a distinctive Asian language from other languages in China and most people outside of China (except for Chinese nationalists) consider Miao-Yao not placed under the Sino-Tibetan family tree.
In the 20th century, Hakka might have been suppressed by Chinese nationalists of the Kuomintang (ROC) government out of favoritism for only Mandarin with a Beijing accent to thrive in Taiwan. Blessed with charm that the Kuomintang (ROC) was declining in its power in the late 1980s, the DPP is trying to promote equality for Taiwanese people to speak Hakka alongside Min, Mandarin, and the Taiwanese aborigines languages whatever they wish. The progressive party, especially the current Hakka president of Taiwan, rocks!
