List of Hakka people

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A list of notable Hakka people, belonging to the Han Chinese.

The list is based on patrilineality (ancestry on the paternal side regardless of maternal ancestry or the different degrees of ancestry)[1][2] which the Chinese culture practises. In Chinese terms, it refers to one's dialect group (Chinese: 籍贯). They may or may not have identified publicly that they are Hakka this includes those who have little to some Hakka ancestry. However, people whose maternal side are Hakka and who have publicly identified themselves as Hakka are included. The list also include descendants of overseas Hakkas who have inter-married with other ethnicities and other Han-Chinese groups. In both cases, information on their backgrounds are found under Description but is not complete.
