Paul C. Lo said American and other ethnic groups know “Hmong” because of General Vang Pao, the CIA, and the secret war in Laos.
“Recently, just days ago, I was happened to be at a play at UC Merced and the play was put together by couple of native Laotian actors. They talked about Laotian history, Laotian culture, and they have a small part in there about the Hmong people. The question they asked was why America knows about the Hmong people. A lot of people in this country know about the Hmong people why? There is no Hmong land… and so unlike the Laotian people… why does the people in this country know about the Hmong people? Their answer was… well… because General Vang Pao, the CIA, and the secret war in Laos” said Paul C. Lo.
Dr. Xa Xiong said General Vang Pao was the key to open the door for Hmong to begin a new life in America.
“He is hero to all of us. You (General Vang Pao) represented the key to open the door for all of us to come to America to start a new life and to receive better education” said Dr. Xa Xiong.
