The island at the time was largely inhabited by the Hlai, but during and after the Han dynasty significant ethnic Chinese settlement took place in the northwest (Lingao, Danzhou, etc.), an area which now speaks a language related to Zhuang but heavily influenced by Chinese.
The ancestors of the 'Hainanese', the island's currently dominant Chinese ethnic group, were fishermen from Fujian and Guangdong provinces who originally began settling around the coast in the north and northeast under the Song dynasty (dynasty dates: 960-1279).
Hainan often featured a classic colonial frontier situation in which settlers from the Mainland met fierce resistance from the unpacified Hlai, until these were defeated in a decisive battle in the 18th century, forcing them into the mountains.
