The Tiandihui Rebellion 天地會

The Tiandihui (Tian-Di Association or Heaven and Earth Society) (Chinese: 天地會;pinyin: Tiān Dì Huì) or Hongmen 洪门, is a fraternal organization that originated inChina. As the Tiandihui spread through different counties and provinces, it branched off into many groups and became known by many names, including the Sanhehui. TheHongmen grouping is today more or less synonymous with the whole Tiandihui concept, although the title "Hongmen" is also claimed by some criminal groups.


When the British ruled Hong Kong, all Chinese secret societies were seen as criminal threats and together defined as Triads, although the Hongmen might be said to have differed in its nature from others. The name of the "Three Harmonies Society" (the "Sanhehui" grouping of the Tiandihui) is in fact the source of the term "Triad" that has become synonymous with Chinese organized crime. Because of that heritage, the Tiandihui is sometimes controversial and is illegal in Hong Kong.
