LMAO, of course lolThere are a fair number of Hmong people around where I live. At least enough that if a public announcement or document is going to be translated from English the first language is Spanish and the second is Hmong.
Last fall a Hmong gentleman called me with regard to a bull I had listed for sale. He wanted beef. I ended up agreeing to sell him a cow, I shot it for him, and they butchered it on the farm. I hadn’t mentioned it to my brother, and he was gone when I shot the cow. So he drove up to see a middle-aged, blood-spattered Asian gentleman, standing next to a car with blacked-out windows, holding a large bucket of very sharp knives, saying “we’re gonna have a party!” Another several guys were gathered around a partially-butchered cow on the other side of the lawn. I guess it was pretty intimidating.
I figured it was maybe a wedding or something like that. Killing a cow is expensive, but what they had into it vs. how much meat they got actually works out to fairly cheap beef. They bought the cow for $600, and probably ended up with close to 400 lbs of beef. That’s quite a party, you could easily feed a couple hundred people.LMAO, of course lol
1. Youre in Wisconsin, all hmong people are populated only and mostly in Wisconsin, California, Carolinas, and Minnesota.
2. They use the cow to sacrifice and do some religious ritual thingy. Killing a cow is expensive, which is probably why they celebrated, plus, we always treat a ritual a "party", pretty much just inviting hell of a lot of relatives in the house and eating a bunch of food while doing the ritual thingy.
