I've heard something about the earliest hmongs to have an appearance close to white ppl. I think it's a ressessive gene. or malnutrition could've caused it. many says those early hmongs were hunted and killed for their appearances. kind of indefinite to me.

what are the latest movies you can suggest me to watch that closely depicts the movement of the hmong ppl in the past?

i think hmong people originated in the Mongolia area because only the hmong and mongolians have kids (from full blooded hmong or mongolian parents) that have non-black hair like brown, red, and blond.

also the fact that we are one of the few asians who don't eat with chopsticks could mean that we originated from somewhere where western and asian culture intermixed.


no i dont believe that hmong people originated from Mongolia. I mean just because the two words sound almost alike doesnt me we're from there! And just because we dont eat with chopsticks doesnt mean we're originated from where western and asian cuture intermixed.-_-...... wat happen if white people started eating with shopsticks, are they originated from china now?..o_O......huh..as far as i knoe, most hmong people use thier fingers to eat.. ^_^ V

hmmm.... it might be true, but I also heard that Chiyou doesn't really exist only in chinese myth stories. After that I was curious enough to ever wonder that has anyone ever found the real body of Chiyou or any proof of it's time. Other than that it's always good to hear these.

The thing is it was finally accepted as a myth by the Chinese a couple of years ago. (2 maybe?) Also, it doesn't really matter if his body is found or not, it's really the oral story and myths that matter more IMO. icon_smile.gif It's quite impossible to find a fossilized body of such a specific person in the first place.

For all i know is that their myth had us (Hmongs) and them (chinese) went to many battles with magic powers in their myth stories. I'm not trying to had on chiyou, but he's still one of my favorite hmong leaders. He's actually my number one favorite. i heard that the koreans are descents of chiyou, but not sure. they have history with him. they are also followers of Chiyou. my korean friend refers to him as Chiwoo though. same guy. to me there has to be at least something of what's left by that time like artifacts, bodies, jewelry, and etc. yeah especially etc. lol biggrin.gif

I would read the origine of the H'Mong later, for it's too long.

In Vietnam, the H'Mong are known as "Cat people" who live in highest lands,
growing Corn and Opium (now heroin).


Cat people. LMFAO!!! Is that why Hmongs were called "meo"? haha

CAT people. ROFL!!! xD This is the reason why the the Hmong did not want to be call Miao.

That's the past. If people still assume Miao are cats, they're wrong. Period.

The word "MEO" in Thai/Lao for Hmong was derived from the Chinese term "Miao". But in the Thai and Lao language it is VERY similar in sounding to the word "cat" which is also pronounced "MEO". So it has been used in a derogatory manner in the past. That is why we Hmong hate the term when we hear it.


In Chinese it is more neutral. It sounds nothing like their word for "Cat". Miao = Mao. Different pronounciation, different tones.
