Who are the Hands peoples of Asia? Hands peoples derive their historic origins from the Middle East and Mother India.

From these origins, vast countries of diversities emerged to form the Hindu and Muslim economies of Asia today – the Tiger Economies. These Tiger economies began in the Middle East, then moved across to India down to South-East Asia. These countries comprise cultures which are diverse in religions, languages, dialects, ethnicities, and cuisines. There is no one word that could describe them all.

Moni Lai Storz has chosen "Hands" as the collective word for the Tiger economies to differentiate these peoples' cultures from those of the Chopsticks or Sinitic peoples of Asia. Hands peoples are Asians who consider the right hand as the sacred hand, that is ‘the clean hand’, and consider the left hand as profane or unclean.
