Hmong Hill Tribe Village, Northern Laos


This photo was taken in a Hmong village in Nothern Laos. The Hmong, or Mong, are an Asian ethnic group of people from the mountainous regions of Vietnam, Laos, Thailand and Burma. Hmong are also one of the sub-groups of the Miao ethnicity in southern China. Hmong groups began a gradual southward migration in the 18th century due to political unrest and to find more arable land.
