hmong/miao history not so credible since most archives are lost or not documented. many are educated guesses and asumptions but without evidence, they are irrelevant, yet very informative and provide hmong with sense of attachment or origin. like adopted kid wanted to know who their real parents are, hmong long for their parents/origin.
agree...and that brings up this question (gonna be off topic): why, in the traditional songs from the hmongs, do they tend to sing about "tub ntsuag" (well, before all these love songs came out)? but yeah...i really like that last line.

hey this is alittle info i got from inviting a site
...Hmong folktales describe a place having six months of light and six of dark, where snow lay on mountains and ice covered lakes.
this line right here is really interesting...when i read it...i said, "the world was literally made in six days." and that got me thinkin...what's the significance of 6?

Yo I think the Hmong are the Native American version of Asia. The English used to call Native Americans, savages, which is a derrogative term, and all the other Asians call the Hmong, meo, which bestows a meaning of savagery and is a derrogative term toward the Hmong. Plus meo means cat in Viet. The beliefs are quite the same. Both the Hmong and the Native American religions are based off of animism and involves a shaman or witch doctor. And according to history the Hmong have faced many battles quite like the Native Americans. They are warriors of a land that was taken from them. Just thought I should mention these similarities. What do you guys think?
you bring up a very great point...i used to compare and contrast the native americans with the hmongs whenever i read articles or pieces of writing about them or see a film...but yeah...very great point though...here comes another research...

Hmong people are asian white-wash. Because nobody knows the fu-k where we came from.
umm...wow...because we don't know where we came from and no one else does too...we should attempt to find our origins...and Hmong people are most certainly not "asian white-wash".

"Hmong is just a group of people lost in a world with no country"
not just any group of people...but i agree...we are a group of people that is lost in this world and have no country of our own.
