A Blue Hmong (Hmong Njua) girl holds her little brother in a Hmong village in the vicinity of Muang Vang Vieng in Vientiane Province. Her pleated skirt indicates she is Blue Hmong. She is wearing a large silver neck ring of four bands. Her brother has recently had a haircut, leaving only the hair on the top of his head. In the background are two large houses with thatch roofing and forested hills.
