Welcome to Congress of World Hmong People (CWHP). The Hmong Indigenous Tribal People have been and continuing facing all racial inequalities in the Xaysombun Special Zone, their home territory of northern Laos.

The civil war between the Hmong Indigenous Tribal People and the Lao PDR was escalated after 1975 when the Lao PDR took control of Laos. The Lao PDR government suppressed and oppressed the Hmong Indigenous Tribal People to renounce their past political affiliations with the west.

These ongoing racial oppressions and suppressions have led to the formation of Congress of World Hmong People (CWHP). CWHP’s primary duty is to address these racial violations to United Nations Human Rights mechanisms where the Lao PDR government is a state party to.

In February 2007, the Hmong Indigenous Tribal people were recognized as a sovereign people at the UNPO (Unrepresented Nations and People Organization) in preserving the Hmong economic, social, and cultural rights, and the rights to self-determination.

The Hmong Indigenous Tribal People are sovereign people. They have every right to pursue and safe guard their economic, social, and cultural rights.

Article 1 International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights: All peoples have the right of self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.

In the 18th century, the French came to Southeast Asia and established a colony known as Indochine and later Indochina.

During those long years, the French had established good relations with the Hmong Indigenous Tribal People in the central Southeast Asia regions.

The French began to impose taxation mechanism as a way of generated revenue. Hmong leaders that worked for the French as tax collectors abused their power by enforcing heavy taxes to the Hmong. Many Hmong Indigenous Tribal People could not afford to pay taxes. For the poor, they had to give up their children for slavery, and gave up their family livestock for the debts owed.

In 1918 Vue Pa Chay realized that this taxation had caused unfairness and was in violation of the rights of the people. He organized the Hmong who were against this heavy taxation and revolted against the French and the abusers. This time the Hmong divided into two groups: one group in favor of Vue Pa Chay and the other in favor of the benefit from the French.

His war was allying his believers to God. His war was believed to be quiet unusual and undefeatable. He was called insane or ChaoFa. This war ended in 1921 in the death of Vue Pa Chay and his followers.

During this time many of the Vue Pa Chay’s followers were exterminated and head-cut-off at Kham Khaib, Xiengkhoung.

Lor Kia Tong and LyFoung were Hmong royalists who fought the Japanese, the Vietnamese, and the Lao Communists. They were also royalists to the French.

The Laotian government devised political strategies to divide Hmong into many factions: the right wing, Lor Kia Tong; and the left wing, LyFoung and Vang Pao. Because of this strategy, regardless of who won the civil war, the result would benefit the Laotian government.

Lao became Independent in 1953 from the Franco-Lao Treaty. The Hmong Indigenous Tribal People was awarded a land for their people. But LyFoung denied and later became the Autonomous successor of “Moung Meo.” The “Moung Meo” later recaptured by Laos.

Until 1941 Ho Chi Minh began to revolt against the French aggression known as the Indochina War. The Vietnamese people were gaining Independence on the North and in the South 1954.

Two months after the Geneva Conference on Indochina in 1954, Ho Chi Minhs’ goal was to reunite his people from the division of North and South. The North Vietnamese established small arm group-known Group 100 in Thanh Hoa-Houaphan. This unit was to provide logistical support to Pathet Lao Force. They later combine their arm forces as Group 959, headquartered in Nankai, inside Houaphan in September of 1959.

The political mission was to establish the Ho Chi Minh Trail on the Laotian territory to go to the South Vietnam. Mr. Ho political action was in violations of the 1954 Geneva Conference to refrain from any interference in the internal affairs of Laos.

The United States immediately intervened and came to Laos and recruited the Hmong Tribal People and other tribal people in the regions to help cut the North Viet Cong from going into the South on the Ho Chi Minh Trail. The Hmong Tribal Peoples’ mission was to rescue the American pilots and blocking the Ho Chi Minh Trail.

This secret mission, known as the “Secret War” ended when the Paris Peace Accord signed in Paris in January 27, 1973. The arms conflicts continue until 1975.

In1959 Shonglue emerged claimed that he was led by God to save the Hmong Tribal People. He was uneducated person born in a very poor family. He claimed that God helped him invented the Hmong writing, Hmong national flag, and reinforce focus on the Hmong Tribal People religions. He was labeled “crazy and insane” and was assassinated in 1971. His teachings are carrying on until today.

The Pathet Lao freely took over Laos in 1975 in the wake of Vietnam War that was unified Vietnam. The Pathet Lao immediately waged war by creating battalion called “Pa Chay Battalion estimated around 65,000 Pathet Lao and Vietnamese soldiers combines” attacking the Hmong Indigenous Tribal People from 1975 at the Phou Bia Mountain to 1978.

For this reason, Zong Zoua Her led many Hmong Indigenous Tribal People and stood for the Hmong economic, social and cultural rights, and exercises these rights until today in the Xaisombun Special Zone following Father Shonglue gospel of the Hmong nationalism.

This on going secret civil war between the Hmong Indigenous Tribal People and Pathet Lao known ChaoFa; and later known the United Hmong ChaoFa Democracy Party.

As of today many Hmong Indigenous Tribal People are taking refuge in the Xaisombun Special Zone. This zone continues to become a war zone between the Hmong Indigenous Tribal People and the Lao PDR government.

The last refugees of the Hmong Indigenous Tribal People were forcibly repatriating from Huay Nam Khao, Thailand back to their Pathet Lao enemy in December 2009.
