“Hmong has many issues start from China. None of us can search for the truth of the caused. Those that went to China got different history of the Hmong. We do not have a unique true historical why Hmong fled China and facing all issues. We arrived in America, I wanted to start an organization base to form Hmong together to hope for unity and to love one another. Hmong 18 Clan organization was a good idea to form. Each of the Clan has a representation in the organization to represent his/her clan. This will show the good and the bad of each clan and to hope Hmong to united forward” said General Vang Pao.
General Vang Pao said after the Hmong 18 Clan organization established, most issues rise within the organization are that the clan’s representative to the Hmong 18 Clan organization is not qualified to serve in his/her position. “We have different level of perspectives. Some are thinking in the modern world and some still thinking about life back in China. We cannot serve the same purpose when we have many levels of perspective. Some clan representatives still control by their clan leaders and the decision shifted after everyone agree to” said General Vang Pao.
General Vang Pao’s vision for the Hmong 18 Clan organization is to create an organization that has 18 clan, one representative from each clan to the organization, to solve issues and find ways for Hmong to improve life in all aspects today and the future.
