I'm still a little unclear as to what hakka is, other than the name
of a quasi-regional "tribe" of boat dwellers around the coasts of
China... quasi-regional in the sense that they're discussed with
other regions, have their own dialect, cuisine, culture, etc. --
just no place on the map to call home.
I gather "haka" is a Maori dance? Looks a bit like a group kung-fu
