Indigenous Peoples' Human Rights A. History of the hmong. Prior to the 1800s, the hmong were indigenous peoples living along the plains of the Yellow River in China. http://www.hrusa.org/indig/reports/hmong.htm
Extractions: Prior to the 1800s, the Hmong were indigenous peoples living along the plains of the Yellow River in China. For centuries, they lived along these plains, peaceably, but with a proud and independent spirit. In the 19 th century, the expansionist movements of the Imperial Han resulted in thousands of Hmong massacred and displaced. Refusing to be dominated, the surviving Hmong took to the mountains for protection. The mountains were difficult for a farming society, as was the Hmong then. However, the mountains were less accessible and more defensible against the imperialist Han. They lived and thrived in the mountains, moving only when threatened. As expansionist pressures from the Han increased, so did migration of the Hmong. By the 1800s, the Hmong found themselves forced to migrate into the highlands of Southeast Asia. Laos was home to many Hmong by the early 1800s. The Vietnam War caused even more migration of the Hmong. Many became refugees in Thailand; others found themselves in other parts of Asia. Thousands were granted refugee status in western countries, including the United States. Due to the constant migration and poor census data collection in developing countries, there had never been an accurate count of the population of Hmong. It was only estimated in 2000 that 400,000 Hmong lived in Laos and 300,000 in the United States. Today, the largest concentrations of Hmong in the U.S. are in Wisconsin, Minnesota and California.
Extractions: The Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP) is an unprecedented regional forum, composed of eighteen indigenous peoples organizations from ten countries, that works to build cooperation and solidarity among the threatened indigenous peoples of the region. AIPP has been actively contributing to international standard setting on indigenous rightsthe protection and revitalization of indigenous social and cultural institutions, control over ancestral homelands, and development of communitiesthrough its involvement in the United Nations Working Group on Indigenous Populations (UNWGIP), the International Labor Organization, the United Nations Development Programme, and other international forums. After operating informally as a regional network since 1988, AIPP was officially founded in 1992. That year fifteen indigenous peoples organizations determined that a regional organization was needed to formulate common strategies to promote the collective rights and restore the self esteem of Asian indigenous peoples, and counter the assimilationist policies of many Asian governments. Today AIPP includes organizations representing the Igorot, Lumad, Aeta, and Moro peoples of the Philippines; the Ainu of Japan; the Aborigines of Taiwan; the Moluccan, Melayu, and Dayak of Indonesia; the Dusun, Murut, Orang Ulu, and Dayak of Malaysia; the Karen, Lisu, Akha, Hmong, Lahu, Khamu, Iltin, Lua, and Lawa of Thailand; the Arakham and Chin of Burma; the Jumma of Bangladesh; the Naga and Adivasi of India; and twenty-two nationalities in Nepal.

Protecting Indigenous Peoples' Privacy From "Eyes In The Sky" Protecting indigenous peoples' Privacy. from "Eyes in the Sky" Wayne Madsen. Lead Scientist. Computer Sciences Corporation. Integrated Systems Division. Falls Church, Virginia. Abstract Hawaii Nation (United States) hmong People (Laos) Homeland Mission for South Moluccas (Indonesia http://www.spatial.maine.edu/tempe/madsen.html
Extractions: Falls Church, Virginia Abstract 1. Introduction In his famous dissenting opinion in Olmstead v. U.S., 277 U.S. 438 (1928) , Justice Louis Brandeis called the right to be let alone "the most comprehensive of rights and the right most cherished by civilized men." Justice Brandeis's ruling could just as easily apply to the right of indigenous peoples to be let alone from intrusive central government "development" and surveillance programs. The increasing use of satellites to survey lands and oceans for natural resources comes at the expense of many indigenous peoples to freely conduct various activities on their ancestral lands. Many indigenous tribes maintain a certain kinship with the territory upon which they live. This kinship runs deep and in some cases has an important religious significance for the people concerned. 2. Geographic Information Systems (GISs) and Indigenous Lands Indian leaders contend that those who operate GISs must be sensitive to the traditions surrounding their lands. Many Indian tribes feel that certain data must remain private and not be released to the general public. Data security and privacy controls therefore become problematic. Tribal officials such as the Colville Confederacy leadership feel that certain data cannot be treated as regular data. Information on hunting and gathering areas has a spiritual significance for the Indians that is perhaps unappreciated by statisticians in cold, gray and distant computer rooms (Marchand and Winchell, 1994, 51).

Extractions: Geneva, Switzerland Dear Chairperson, A recent example of the continuing Hmong refugee saga are the 40 Hmong families which were arrested by LPDR authorities at Tha Din Daeng village, Vientiane on September 16, 2000. They had fled from Saysomboun Special Zone because of the danger there. Boun Her Thao, a high level LPDR army officer working in Vientiane, had tried to intervene on their behalf but was later arrested and killed (October 26, 2000) by the Lao government because of his opposition to the way the Hmong were being treated. Another recent case occurred March 2, 2001, when Chao Yang and 8 other villagers were arrested at Tia Bla refugee camp near Muang Cha, Saysomboun Special Zone after refusing to be used as bait to lure the Chao Fa down from the mountains. LPDR soldiers shot and killed Chao's son in front of all the villagers to set an example for those Hmong who defy their authority. Chao Yang and 8 other villagers were then taken away never to be seen again. One villager, Moua Zeb, was able to escape to Thailand, where he is still in hiding waiting for UN protection and a country which will grant him political asylum.
Extractions: The main subject of the 19th Session of the U.N. Working Group today is "Indigenous Peoples and Their Right to Development." This is an important subject for the more than 12 million Hmong people in Laos, China, Vietnam, Burma, Thailand and other countries, and the more than 300 million indigenous peoples on the global level, because they need economic, social, cultural, education, political development, human rights, and peace. Many thousands of those people have and are dying of starvation, disease, oppression, genocide, human rights violations and ethnic cleansing warfare. Many thousands of Hmong people in Laos and other indigenous peoples on the global level are crying out for survival, peace, human rights, freedom and democracy.
Lao Human Rights Council Accomplishments 1987-97 and completed the UN Declaration on the Rights of indigenous peoples in Geneva government s restoration of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to hmong and Lao http://home.earthlink.net/~laohumrights/laoact02.html
Extractions: From 1987 to 1997, the Lao Human Rights Council, Inc., has successfully accomplished the following objectives for Hmong and Lao people: 1. From 1987 to 1997, the Lao Human Rights Council, Inc. and its supporters successfully requested and encouraged the U.S. government to accept more than 80,000 Hmong and Lao refugees in the camps in Thailand to resettle in Wisconsin, Minnesota, California and other states in the United States. 2. The Lao Human Rights Council first led over 800 Hmong and Lao American people to participate in the Human Rights Conference at Yale Law School, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, on December 8, 1990. The purpose of the conference was to emphasize genocide, human rights violations, and chemical warfare against people in Laos. 3. On October 3, 1991, Congressman Toby Roth of Wisconsin introduced the Eighteen Points on Laos of the Lao Human Rights Council, Inc. into the U.S. House of Representatives. The Eighteen Points on human rights violations in Laos were published in the U.S. Congressional Record of October 3, 1991. 4. On February 7-17, 1992, two staff members of a U.S. Congressman and the Chairman of the Lao Human Rights Council, Vang Pobzeb, first visited Hmong and Lao refugee camps in Napho, Vinai and Chieng Kham, Thailand. The purpose of the mission was to request the Thai government and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to allow refugees to stay in Thailand, to stop forced repatriation of refugees from Thailand to Communist Laos, and to allow more refugees in Thailand to resettle in the United States and other third countries.

Extractions: Conchita Poncini, of International Federation Of University Women, opened the debate stating that Hmong indigenous populations of Laos are persecuted by the communist Laotian government since 1975. Charles Graves, of Interfaith International, specified the theme of the debate would be focused on the difficult living conditions of the Hmong populations. Two videos were presented during this meeting: -"a Helicopter Come from Nang Vieng", which portrayed the victims of an army's aggressions. They appealed the International Community for an immediate humanitarian intervention. Thus, we saw the consequences of the bombings: dizziness, paralysed peoples, headaches, children becoming blind and the urgent problem of the lack of medical treatment.
