The common way of life, language and culture of tribes in the Central Plains of China
The people were a confederation of tribes living along the Yellow River, peoples which later became known as Han, and the term is from their language. Initially, Huaxia denoted mainly a civilized society that was distinct and in contrast to what was perceived as the barbaric peoples around it. The term is still used, in a slightly evolved sense, in China's concept of itself.
