Huang He is also called the "mother river" of China, for the Chinese civilization has evolved in the region around the river.
Huang Di came originally from Shandong, and all of the famous tribal battles that he allegedly fought were located in the present North China plain which at the time was part of the Yellow River's flood plain.
Because of the favorable security afforded by the terrain, the political structure established by Huang Di was allowed the establishment to prosper for numerous generations of successors and eventually blossom into the flower of the early Chinese civilization.

 Huang He. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Past Lanzhou, the Huang He becomes a wide, slow-moving stream as it begins its bend around the Ordos and separates the northern uplands from the desert and loess lands of the south and west.
Turning south, the Huang He passes through the Great Wall and enters the fertile loess region (where rich coal deposits are also found on both sides of the river).
During the winter dry season the Huang He is slow-moving and silt-laden, and occupies only part of its huge bed; with the summer rains, it can become a raging torrent.

 Ford Foundation Report
Huang, in his mid-30’s, is also from Anhui, but he came north, after graduate school, to experiment with his theories of educational reform.
Huang named the school in honor of the Chinese educator Tao Xingzhi, who was a major intellectual influence on Huang and is commemorated in statues and postage stamps as a “20th-century Confucius.” Tao, like Huang a native of Anhui, studied at Columbia University’s Teachers College in the 1920’s with John Dewey, the American psychologist.
At Xingzhi, Huang supplements nationally prescribed courses and textbooks with lessons on “speaking, information and observation.” The faculty, many of whom come from the countryside themselves, are dedicated educators working not for the money so much as for a chance to teach in a uniquely fulfilling environment.

If you were to scoop up a handful of dirt from the Huang He (Yellow River) plain, it’s likely that the dirt you are holding was transported down the Yellow River from the loess hills of north-central China.
The Huang He is called the Yellow River because huge amounts of loess soil turn the water that color.
So much of this mineral-rich soil ends up in the Huang He that it can fill the riverbed and thus change the river’s course.
