On February 6, 2014, I interviewed an "I Mien" (i⁵⁵mien⁵¹) man called Đặng Văn Tuấn of Thôn 5, Khe Phàn, xã Sân Thủy in Van Ban District, Lao Cai Province, Vietnam. A young girl about 6 years old or so was writing down a word list of Mien in Vietnamese orthography while I was doing a vocabulary elicitation session with the man, which I also photographed

This Mien dialect is similar to the Kim Mien dialect recorded by Jerold Edmondson in that Proto-Mien voiceless laterals and voiceless nasals have changed to h-.
