  Hakka - An important element of Chinese culture
The spelling "Hakka" is derived from the pronunciation in Hakka dialect (pronounced as "haagga" in Hakka and "kejia" in Mandarin).
Hakka people are noted for their preservation of certain cultural characteristics that could be traced to pre-Qin period (about 2200 years ago) as expressed in the custom, foods, spoken language, etc.
Hakka people are also known to be very adamant in defending their cultural heritage, which was the reason for their migration to flee from the "northern" influence at that time.

They said the origins of Hakka are unknown and the most common opinion is that they moved from northern or central China in stages whenever population pressures demanded or during periods of frequent warfare.
The Hakka were called this when they began migrating into Yue-speaking territory, and the exotic name seems to have stuck quite simply because, until fairly recently, many Cantonese and Min mistakenly thought that the Hakka were not Chinese at all, but rather some kind of strange non-Han "barbarians" like the Tai or the Miao.
This migration was secondary to the pressure of population increase.

When the Hakkas came onto the scene, the local Kaying residents were made up of Cantonese people (Han Chinese) and various tribal peoples (non-Han Chinese.) The Hakka Chinese looked down on the non-Han Chinese tribals, while the Cantonese people looked down on the Hakkas.
(They figured the Hakkas were just another barbarian people as their women didn’t bind their feet like all other Han Chinese did at the time.) These prejudices – towards the tribals and from the Cantonese – caused the Hakkas to draw inward and remain separate from all others in the area.
