Being Hmong Means Being Free

The Hmong, who migrated hundreds of years ago from China to the mountainous regions of Laos, Thailand and Vietnam, have their own ancient language, culture, traditions and heritage. Throughout their history, the Hmong have fiercely defended their right to be an independent people. Indicative of their passion for freedom, the name Hmong is believed by many to mean “free people.”Being Hmong Means Being Free is an in-depth look at the culture, ritual and ceremonies at the heart of the Hmong people. This 60-minute video documentary takes you into the lives of the Hmong in America, explains why they are in the United States, the problems they are facing here, how they are overcoming these difficulties and how they are adapting their culture to their new home.
