There are various opinions in academia on the formation of the Hakka ethnic group. In this paper, we propose a new theory - Evolution Theory of Diversity - for the formation of the Hakka ethnic group by the study of medical outcomes, historical data and typical cases. “Evolution Theory of Diversity” here means that, Hakka ethnic groups not only hold on the Central Plains culture, but also pragmatically align multiple elements, then evolve into a unique ethnic group step by step. With this theory, we study the relationship between Hakka ethnic group and the environment around. Then we build a model- multiple evolution model- to get more understanding of Hakka ethnic group and its culture.

Key words: Hakka ethnic group, Hakka culture, evolution of diversity
