The purpose of this website is to let people discover the Hmong Culture. We will be focusing on the Hmong: History, Clothing, Religion, and Custom. We chose this topic because we want to preserve our culture. Like ever other culture, preserving it gives us an identity and we can learn from our history.
The Hmong are an Asian ethnic group that fought with the United States' CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) during the Vietnam War. The U.S. had promised that they would bring them back if the war was lost, but if they won, the Hmong would be safely protected in the country.
Because of their involvement in the Vietnam War, they were persecuted by the Vietnamese and had to cross the Mekong River into Thailand to escape it. The U.S., because of their promise, brought thousands of Hmong into America when the war was over.
As you will soon learn exploring our website, the Hmong are also a group of people that have been chased from place to place for centuries before.
So have fun exploring.
