Originally from the mountainous regions of southern China (especially Guizhou region), the Hmong, Mong or Hmong are also found today in northern Vietnam and Laos. They are also called Miao in Chinese, meaning "uncooked rice" and refers to long nomadic poorly integrated. The Hmong themselves are called "mountain".

The Khmu, meanwhile, generally inhabit low-lying land and are increasingly integrated into Lao society.
