Young Black Hmong

Young Black Hmong, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

Another ever-so-cute young child.

The largest minority tribe here in Sa Pa are the Black Hmong, who wear blcack and navy clothes, made from locally grown hemp, dyed with locally produced indigo, coloured with imported cottons and wools from elsewhere.

We had seen Hmong elsewhere in the past few days, but they were not necessarily as traditional dress-wise as the Hmong here. The women sem to be very good at commerce and like iot sell you their cloths and these ones all speak surprisingly good English.
