History about Ly Clan and Lor Clan conflicted

1938: Appointment by French Administration of Touby Lyfoung (Tub Npis Lis Foom), son of the Ly Foung as the Kaitong.
1943: Arrival of Japanese troupes in Laos. Hmong two most powerful clans, the clan Ly/Lyfoung (lead by Touby Lyfoung, son of Ly Foung and nephew of Lo Blia Yao) and the Lo/Lobliayao (Lead by the Faydang Lobliayao (Faiv Ntaj Lauj Npliaj Yob), Lo Bliayao's son and Touby Lyfoung's uncle) fought for Lo Bliayao's political position of "Kaitong" in the District of Non Het in the Province of Xieng Khouang, Laos. The Ly/Lyfoung was supporters of the French colonialists and the Lo/Lobliayao, of the Japanese invaders: the end of the World War II divided the Hmong community into two fractions. The Ly/Lyfoung remained in Laos and supported the Lao royal regime. As for the Lo/Lobliayao, they fled to Vietnam where they joined the Pathet Lao, ally of the Vietnamese communist movement.
after qian jia rebellion in 1795 thousand of hmong fled to dong van in vietnam. in 1805-06 paj txhim, blia yob's father organized a team led by khwb vwj to laos to look for a new place to settle. they landed and settled in nong het, laos. pas txim was in fact an unofficial and only a clan kia toom back in vietnam and still retained his title when arrived in laos. later in laos paj txim was murdered. because his oldest son, npliaj yob was still only boy, his title was passed to his
uncle, txhiaj xwm lauj. of course, before 1896 when the first official kia toom, tooj ntxawg muas appionted was by the french, there were many countless kia toom vang, yang, lee, lor etc.., but these are just clan kiab toom. tooj ntxawg, npliaj yob and thereafter were the ones who appointed by the french to governed the hmong and collected tax from the hmong for the french. at that time the title was considered broarder, but later was replaced by toj xeem system.
