Haná or Hanakia (Czech: Haná or Hanácko, German: Hanna or Hanakei) is an ethnic region in central Moravia in the Czech Republic. Its main parts are located in the lowlands of the rivers of Morava and Haná. It is roughly encircled by the cities of Zábřeh, Holešov, Vyškov and Uničov. Haná is primarily known for its agricultural productivity, costumes, and traditional customs. The Haná dialect (Hanakian dialect or Central Moravian dialect; Czech: hanáčtina) is spoken in the region, and is part of the Central Moravian dialect group. This traditional dialect has been preserved and continues to be used even in printed publications from the region. Folk music from Haná is recognized locally by its lyrics in the Haná dialect.


In the 18th and 19th century, the term "Hanack" (Hanák, French: Hanaque),[1] was used for a Slavic people, peasants, in Moravia.[2] Today, the Czech term Hanáci is used for an ethnographic group inhabiting the Haná region.
