Portrait of Hmong Woman In Traditional Outfit
The Hmong people are an ethnic group currently native to several countries, believed to have come from the Yangtze river basin area in southern China. Throughout recorded history, the Hmong have remained identifiable as Hmong because they have maintained their own language, customs, and ways of life while adopting the ways of the country in which they live.
