I am Hmong. (If you don’t care, don’t continue to read.)
Many people have no idea what Hmong people are. When I first heard someone say to me “What’s Hmong?” After telling them what I am, I was surprised. I question myself why people don’t know what they are. Of course I didn’t know why, because I was born in America. I didn’t know the history of Hmong people. I thought that the name was just as common as “Chinese”, “Japanese”, “Korean”, “Thai”, “Laotian”, etc. I learned that Hmong people came from China, which was their original home. They all spread and moved to other different countries after losing their home in a war that happened there. That’s why “Hmong” isn’t something people would hear in the history. Since they are now everywhere in the countries, they don’t have a specific place for themselves to call it their “home” country. This is what I learned.
