Are Chinese cousins to Hmong tribe?
« on: May 14, 2017, 01:38:45 AM »
By looking at the DNA, I think we are cousins in some ways throughout history. It's like Spanish and French are a cousin since they are rooted in Latin. English and German are rooted in the Germanic language, not Latin.

By Hmong people's DNA of its modern day, we are the older cousin of the Han. According to Chiyou, Han are our baby cousin since Chiyou's third son who tried to govern them, ends up dying by the people who he governed. Koreans are related to Mongols, Turkish, and Japanese. Hmong are more closer to Chinese.

I could be wrong, but what is your thought? :-\ :-\ :-\

Of all the human languages, ours is closer to Chinese than to any other.

So, I agree with you on that.

But I'm not sure if the Hans are our baby cousins though. Not sure what that means.

Hmong, Koreans, Japanese, even Laotians and Thais came out of China.

Shouldn't the DNA results themselves provide the answer or answers?

Baby cousin as in, we are the first empire before the Yellow Dynasty. The Yellow Emperor didn't have a country; we did. It lasted for 500 years so according to every empire in the ancient times that only last for 500 years. Modern countries as you know it, last longer than 500 years. America is suppose to be dead; yet, it strive is because it's not under one ruler.

Our original Hmong language was not related to the Han Chinese.  After the Han conquered our tribes, they assimilated us into their language, culture, etc.  Our Hmong language used today is a mixture of Han Chinese, Laotian, etc.  The original language was been lost long times ago...the one thing uniquely Hmong are our traditional clothing wore during New Years...even our belief system was tainted during the Han Chinese's domination over our Miao tribes...

Technically it should. But it also depends on which genetic pool it was taken from since no source was referenced. Was the DNA sample taken from the Hmong or Miao tribes from China or the Hmong tribes from the US or SE Asia outside of China?

1. In Asia, the commonly referenced Hmong or Miao tribes are from China.
2. In the US, the commonly referenced Hmong tribes are us. The ones that roam this forum, the ones with a majority that live in MN, CA, SE Asia region [Laos, Thailand, Vietnam], the ones who fought in the "Secret War", the ones with a majority on welfare in comparison with other US Asian groups. Though we are technically "Hmong", we are distinct enough that we're not the Chinese Hmong or Miao. Like them, us, and a few others we're all subgroups under "Hmong."

I agree we are related to the Chinese. But only modern Hmong are. The original "Hmong" were a different group from the Chinese. Other theory that there could be a relation, is that the original Hmong and the group that would later become the "Chinese" shared a common ancestor. Any farther back, it's approaching the after "Out of Africa" timeline.

That makes sense.

Sounds like beyond any evidence that can be provided, it's all just conjectures though.
