18 Council Hmong Wedding Guide has its place

By PA DER VANG Guest Editorial

ST. PAUL (Oct. 25, 2013) — The deep cultural meanings in the traditional Hmong wedding ceremony has lost their relevance to many Hmong as they transition to life in the United States resulting in conflict in the community regarding the traditional Hmong wedding practices, especially the bridewealth.

The traditional Hmong wedding ceremony is the act of transferring a bride to her groom’s clan. Women are transferred between clans, forging relationships between these clans. In addition, traditional Hmong culture is animist.

In the animist tradition, human life is heavily dictated by ancestral spirits that are directly involved in the facilitation of human life from birth to after death. Women are not considered inherently endowed with spirits that facilitate the events of her life from birth to after death, as men are. In order for a woman to have the protection of spirits, she must be connected to a man and she must be assimilated into his clan.

The Hmong wedding ceremony ensures that the bride will be overseen by the groom’s ancestral spirits who will facilitate her journey into the afterlife upon her death. Upon marriage, she is transferred from her father’s spirits to those of the groom. Thus, marriage procedures must include agreements about her funeral. The groom and his clan must demonstrate their commitment to provide her with a proper burial in the future.
