    well i could tell u guys the story of y we r in the usa, well during the vietnam war the americans as u know were fighting the vietcong commies so they recruited different ethnic peoples who happens to resides on the ho chi min trail,americans recruited hmong, mien, khmu lahu, akhas and other ethnicities to block the trail to so the communist can't supply weapons to there troops who were already down in the south, after the americans pulled out they left us so now they granted us the the opportunity to come to the states
    there is alot of clips on youtube but i like this one , this is only a preview part so go look for the rest,the hmong americans r descendants of hmong people of laos
