Too slow though. They need a Lao Donald J. Trump as a leader.

I don't think they would call it "North Laos."

It would probably be something like "Hmoob Land" or such...

'Land of 100 Elephants'? Because there could be only 100 elephants left in the jungle.

no, that's the part you don't get. The Hmong wouldn't name it after anything Lao, as they consider themselves a separate nationality.

'Land of Mountains'? Because topographic map suggests northernmost Laos appears to be very mountainous.

They had a name for it and it was in Hmong but I forgot what it was called. Anyway in Laos that group is known as the Jao Fa and they were executed..

Vietnam ain't going to fudge in giving up land space because they are running out of land space with 100 million people already. Vietnam intrudes into Laos already and taking natural resources from Laos to benefit their kind.

Where are you from Mark? Australia or New Zealand perhaps?

Can anyone translate 'Land of Mountains' into Hmong language?

It's hard to see the Lao government ever dividing Laos up to give to the Hmong

Exactly. Laos and Vietnam are still the least democratic countries in the ASEAN block.

Anyway, Navajo and Lao. That's a mix no one would expect. I knew you were Lao though, I could tell by the way you type.

I practice mostly southern culture with a twist of Navajo flavour in the mixture. Not too sue about Lao though.
