Hmong and Inuit: facial features, hunting, dogs, ice and snow location

Black Hmong in Sa Pa, Vietnam


Hmong – Early history – The Hmong people have a recollected history that stretches back, perhaps to the last Ice Age. The Hmong’s early history can be traced back according to their oral history and burial rituals.
In oral history, Hmong legend recalls the Hmong people coming from a place of extreme cold, where it was dark for 6 months and light for 6 months. From this place, they entered into China by way of a hunting expedition. A hunter and his dog hunted for several days after a wild animal in the snow. The hunter ran out of food and came back for several days without his dog to prepare for and continue the hunt. When the hunter set out again, the dog had already followed him back. The hunter petted his dog and found some new and different seeds on the fur. Then, Hmong people thought the known world was already explored, but the new and different seeds led Hmong people into China.
A second place that describes where Hmong people came from occurs in their “Showing the Way” burial ritual. In this ritual, the deceased is instructed to go back to the ancestors. It is believed that the ancestors have died and left this world to return to their place of origin, which is, again, the place of extreme cold. The last Ice Age ended about 10,000 years ago, and coincided with the rise of modern man. The conditions described by Hmong people’s oral history and “Showing the Way” certainly resembles a world of monotonous ice and snow, conditions that were last seen during the end of the last Ice Age.

Now look at the Inuit people in the Arctic. Compare their facial features, hunting, dogs, ice and snow location. Compare this video to the Hmong oral history.

  1. Inuit or Eskimo: Which name to use?

    “Although the name “Eskimo” is commonly used in Alaska to refer to all Inuit and Yupik people of the world, this name is considered derogatory in many other places because it was given by non-Inuit people and was said to mean “eater of raw meat.””

    I notice they don’t eat any veggies. However, they are smart for eating the sea lion raw because it gives them the same nuritient plants give.

    I just received my DNA results and I am surprised to see a little bit of Inuit in my data. I’m hmong, by the way.

    • Hi Jenny,

      Thanks for the comment! Where did you do your DNA test at? It’s quite interesting to see how the Hmong and the Native American/Native Alaskan/Siberian people connect. There are a lot of information/data out there, we just got to find the connection.
