The Hakka (Mandarin: Kèjiā) are a subgroup of the Han Chinese people who live predominantly in the provinces of Guangdong, Jiangxi, and Fujian in China. Their ancestors were often said to have arrived from Northern China or Central China centuries ago. It is still a contested issue where the Hakka originated. It is said that in a series of migrations, the Hakkas moved, settled in their present locations in southern China, and then migrated overseas to various nations throughout the world. The Hakka have had a significant influence on the course of Chinese and overseas Chinese history: in particular, they have been a source of revolutionary, political and military leaders. Hakkas are most commonly found in the southern Chinese provinces, but may also be found in the northern provinces; for example there are television news programs read in Hakka in Xi'an (Shaanxi). The presence of Hakkas is pan-China.

Hu Jintao Is he a hakka?

No, his ethnic group is Han (汉族). Hakka are also Han, so is cantonese, Hokkien, wu, xiang,etc.what is a han anyways?its just a way to categorise some group. About Hu Jintao is a Hakka or not , that I am not sure. All I can say is that He is selected by Deng Xiaoping who is a famous Hakka. Why didn't he select a Hakka if Hu Jintao is not a Hakka? Why did he gave up the power to other ethnic group? He could do that , but I don't know. Besides, Hu Jintao's behaviour and attitude seems to be like the Hakkas, but then again, he could be faking it, I don't know. He also looks a lot like Li Peng, the Hakka premier ,along with Hakka paramount leader Deng Xiaoping,who sent tanks to Tianannmen massacre.
