The Hmong Wedding Procedures (Kab Tshoob Kev Kos) class started on May 22, 2014 and ended on September 24, 2014. Eleven students graduated. The class was held every Thursday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. It was free of charge and taught by Mr. Nao Lue Vue, Chair of the Hmong Wedding Procedures of the Lao Hmong Family Association of San Diego (LHFA). According to Mr. Vue, traditional Hmong marriages include a number of rituals/procedures which may take up to a year to learn. These are age old practices which have been passed orally from generation to generation. Since Hmong traditional weddings must be facilitated by the Wedding Negotiators (Mej Koob) from both sides of the groom and bride's family, Mej Koob have to be well versed on the wedding procedures and wedding songs.
