Description

According to Chinese legend, the Yellow Emperor of Huaxia battled and defeated Chi You, leader of the Nine Li tribe, at the Battle of Zhuolu in the 26th century BCE. For the Miao people of modern-day China, Chi You - whom they refer to as "Txiv Yawg" - is a mythical king and founding father of their nation. Most Miao live in southern China, but there is a significant diaspora in southeast Asian countries as well as Europe and North America, of which many belong to the "Hmong" sub-group.
