January 1, 1912 to the creation of Manchukuo by the Japanese in
March 9, 1932 there were millions of peasants emigrated from
Shandong province to the inhospitable lands of north-east (Manchuria).
Manchuria, the homeland of the Manchus, was sparesely populated due
to the restiction imposed by the Qing Authority to forbid the Han
people to resettle there. The flood gate was opened, after the collapse
of the Qing Dynasty, for the excessive poverty peasants from Shandong
province. The Shandongese are Northern Mandarin speakers who swarmed into
Manchuria and assimilated the Manchus. Thus Mandarin is the mother tongue
for the Northeasterners.
After the creation of Manchukuo the Japanese put a stop to the
exodus of Han Chinese because Japan wanted to colonize the Northeast.
The Japanese encouraged her own people, Korean and Formosan
