The Hayato ( Japanese: 隼人) were a people of ancient Japan, believed to have lived in the south of Kyushu until at least the Nara period. It has been suggested that the Hayato people were closely related to Malay/Polynesian people. The Kumaso seem to be their distant cousin as well. The Kagoshima dialect could be the result of mixture of the Japanese language and the language of the Hayato. It is widely belived that the majority of the Hayato people have migrated to modern day Shimizu, ward of the city of Shizuoka. ...more on Wikipedia about "Hayato (people)"

Horites (Egyptian Khar) were cave-dwellers mentioned in the Bible inhabiting areas around Petra. They have been identified with Egyptian references to Khar which concern a southern region of Canaan. This location and the similarity of the biblical term Hori to the Egyptian term Khar, formerly translated as Harri, has connected the Biblical Horites. Their most famous ancestor is called Seir but no genealogy is given for him. Despite the widespread sphere of Hurrian influence these might not be synonymous. While in history Hurrians had close relations with so-called Hattians, biblical Horites are closely associated, through Seir's son Zibeon, with the Hivites. It may be that rather than being a nation, the biblical term Hori may simply refer to a lifestyle common among Hivites which if a meaning is derived from their name makes them a "cave-dwelling" people - Troglodytes. They were infiltrated by the Edomites and subsequently assimilated. Another location associated with them is the volcanic region of Hauran. ...more on Wikipedia about "Horites"

The Iberians arrived in Spain sometime in the third millennium B.C., although their arrival has been dated as early as 4000 B.C. Most scholars believe the Iberians came from a region farther east in the Mediterranean, although some have suggested that they originated in North Africa while others believe the Iberians were a culture that evolved from native groups. The Iberians first settled along the eastern coast of Spain, and possibly spread throughout the rest of the Iberian Peninsula later on. The Iberians lived in isolated communities based on a tribal organisation. They also had a knowledge of metal working, including bronze, and agricultural techniques. In later years, the Iberians evolved into a more complex civilization with urbanized communities and social stratification. They traded metals with the Phoenicians, Greeks, and Carthaginians. ...more on Wikipedia about "Iberians"

Illyrians has come to refer to a broad, ill-defined group of peoples who inhabited the western Balkans (from northern Epirus to southern Pannonia) and even perhaps parts of Southern Italy in Classical times into the Common era. It is, however, unclear whether in reality there was such a broad group that identified as Illyrians, and some argue that the ethnonym Illyrioi came to be applied to this large group of tribes by the ancient Greeks, Illyrioi having perhaps originally designated only a single tribe that came to be widely known to the Greeks due to proximity. ...more on Wikipedia about "Illyrians"
