Cha's book, I felt like an outsider because I did not know the reasons behind all the traditions, beliefs, systems, and etc. Growing up in a Hmong household, children are brought up not to question their parents or the culture.
This may be why I was familiar with Hmong culture, but could not explain the reasons why we do the things we do to my non-Hmong friends. I have much more appreciation for the culture and my parents' way of bringing my sisters and I up now after reading this book and Thomas S. Vang's A History of the Hmong. Misunderstandings and the willing to complete a task without question is one of the main clashes between parents and children.

An introduction to Hmong culture (eBook, ) [cutyrasohase.tk]
Given that there isn't a huge selection of Hmong textbooks, this book does an adequate job introducing aspects of the culture. That said, Cha is erratic in how he presents material, often going into great detail on one topic and following with a sentence about another, seemingly equally important topic. He also has a tendency to prove his points with annecdotes, often about a family member who he'll refer to by name.

An Introduction to Hmong Culture
That is, I can't put it down. I bought the book because I want to learn more about Hmong in America since I often encounter Hmong in my part time business managing a farmers market in my little town. It is a great introduction and now I am pursuing learning some Hmong words so I can better communicate with my Hmong friends. So I decided to read this book because I don't know much about my own culture besides what I have seen or heard or the basics I have learned from my father.
I have to say, there are so many superstitions that I did not know about. The book is very detailed on the introduction to our Hmong culture. I am now looking into finding books that have more in depth information on each aspect.
