The earliest "Hakka" to America
The post of Yoon Ngan of Xu Fu reminded me again of something I posted
in a differnt forum run by Professor Pei Ming Lung:
This is about the article in US and World Report's article on the first
"American natives". I will just transpose over here. I think it should
be of interest to Hakka forum too. For the rest of the discussion and
other responses, please visit that forum.
In the October 12 issue of US News and World Report, the cover story
"America Beforee the Indians". What the article actually implies is
actually Chinese people came to America at least 12,000 years ago, via
the Berling strait to Alaska, Britsih Columbia, all the way down to the
Amazon and Chile via boat and feet. The only clear indication of this
migration is in the map, but without labelling of any country.
Interestingly, the whole article only has one word "China" which
actually had nothing to do with China's contribution to pre-Columbian
American culture. In the first place the title makes little sense since
the word "Indians" is really a misnomer in the first place. The America
before the "Indians" was still
inhibited by the "Indians" who were actually descendents of Chinese!
Many of the facts obvious even now indicate it is not just any Asian,
but Chinese came to America first:
1. A place described in Shan Hai Jing 山海經(the oldest geographic book
in China and probably the world)described a land beyond Japan where
people wear feathers.
2. The river "Ho" in the Olympia park of Washington state had exactly
the same pronunciation as Chinese 河 in almost any dialect.
3. The tribe "Hopi" means peace, the same sound used in Chinese 和平.
4. The "Indian" mounds abundant in America as burial ground stems from
the custom of Chinese burial in raised tombs. This custom was carried to
Japan (There is a "Kofan" 高墳 era.) Kofan meaning high tombs.
5. The "serpent" mound in Ohio and the serpent symbol in many native
American ceremonial structures could be dragon or its primordial form.
This symbol is passed down to the Aztec/Mayan culture. There is clearly
visible octagonic structure of one of the mound sites that could be
associated to the eight diagrams 八卦 of I Ching. There is a lot of
references on the net about the Indian mounds that is worth reading.
6. The astronomical knowledge of Aztec/Mayans culture very closely
related to the Chinese concept.
7. Along the coast of California, some stone anchor were discovered
typical of Chinese construction.
and much more....
An article in an issue of Discover magazine this year indicates the
origin of early native Americans from Japan and Korea, ignoring the fact
that Korea and Japan adopted Chinese culture starting in the Qin/Han
Japan for a long time, even now, has been very vague about how the Japan
nation began. Recently, the discovery of more than 100 bronze mirrors
with inscription indicating them as gifts by the Wei 魏 emporer to the
Japanese Empress Himiko (recorded in
San Guo Zhi 三國志). However, when I inquire the Japanese
archaeologists, no response was given and no further details were
A book by Wei Ting Sheng 衛挺生 has done extensive research and provided
ample evidence that the Japanese Heavenly Emporer 天皇 was actually Xu
Fu 徐福 from China. Xu Fu was the Daoist sent by Qin ShiHuangdi 秦始皇帝
to fetch elixir. He landed in Fukuoka 福岡, which still has many relics
related to him, including the name Fukuoka.
