The Hmong spirit

The Hmong/Mong (RPAHmoob/Moob, Hmong pronunciation: [m̥ɔ̃ŋ]) is an ethnic group from the mountainous regions of southern ChinaVietnamLaosMyanmar and Thailand.

Hmong is one of the 54 ethnic group in Vietnam. The Hmong people occupy the mountainous regions of North Vietnam and are often spotted in the provinces of Ha Giang, Lao Cai, Sa Pa, Lai Chau, Son La.

I was travelling through the breathtaking country side of North Vietnam along with a group of talented photographer and friends in February 2017 capturing the simple beauty of the lives of these amazingly gracious people. On average Hmong women seem to work much harder than men and neither freezing cold or rain seem to dampen their spirits. Hmong women are extremely smart and mostly multi-lingual.

They speak fluent English, French, German, sometimes Spanish and Russian too apart from their native Mong and a few local dialects. Yet, they live humble lives selling their handicraft.

These are my stories from Sa Pa and Lao Cai, Vietnam.
