Hmong spread 7 by Majnouna Hmong spread 7 by Majnouna
Work in progress! I am still missing some terms (where the question marks are) and the vocabulary bar on the right is an early draft. I sent out notes asking for help with it, but additional hints are always welcome.

For those who don't know, this is a spread from a small book I am making about the Hmong people, focusing on dress and other cultural markers.

Before a Hmong watcher asks why I didn't include the qeej with the musical instruments: I'm reserving a whole page for it on the spread that comes right after this one in the book :D

The mouth harp pictured here is from Sapa in Viêt Nam, where the Black Hmong are concentrated.

My thanks go to ~Olithys for helping me with this one :)

Not sure if he got back to telling you what it meant, but just in case you were wondering, he said:

"This is great! Thank you so much for drawing this."
