Mong Arrivals in High Point
Char Lay Nay Taw Mon and Ni Ong Wo Na brought their wives and families to the United States in the last month. They are of the Mong (or Hmong) people group of Burma. This group of people live in the western part of Burma just south of the Karen and Karenni region, close to the delta region. Others of this displaced population group reside in China, Laos, and Thailand. They speak Mong, Thai, and Burmese.
Here in High Point, they live in “little Burma”, the apartment buildings at the corner of Montlieu and Hamilton. Here is a picture of the two families and we would like to say welcome to America!
