Hmong people are their own culture and aren’t from Laos. Laotians are the only original natives of Laos. It just happens that Hmongs were forced to reside in parts of Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and even Vietnam because they were kicked out of their own homeland. Their considered nomads and originate from somewhere in Mongolia. I am Laotian American and have much respect for Hmong immigrants who live in the US. Well, immigrants in general because of the harsh racism that they we all had to face during that time.
