The videos are interesting.... Keep in mind, however, what the
anchor, Ji Xiaojun mentioned: "...at least *that* was the popular
version of events... the historians [perhaps he also means
archaeologists], however, are a little skeptical..."
but that is any 'history' (form of story telling) isn't it?

I would like to present and challenge us to answer the following
questions: How did we get from the name "Chiyou" to "Txiv Yawg/
Yawm"? Does "Chiyou" actually translate into "Grand-father,"
according to the Chinese locals or historians? And, if this is so,
which dialect or language was Chiyou and his people--the Juili--
yes, that is a challenging question. some would question the converse,
'how did they get chi.you from txiv yawg?' on this question of origin,
one important point, stated by ywj pheej xyooj, a point that i agree
with, is 'saib seb lus hmoob txhais tawm los lus suav txhais tawm?'
nyob hauv lus suav, lawv yeej txhais tsis tawm tau tias, chi.you, yog
dab tsi li, BUT, nyob hauv lus hmoob, peb yeej txhais tawm tau. also,
peb hmoob yeej txhais tsis tawm tau tias huang.di + yan.di yog dab tsi
li, BUT, nyob hauv lus suav, suav yeej txhais tawm tau (huang =
yellow, di = emperor, yan = fire, di = emperor). qhov kuv xav xwb mas,
chi.you yog sinicization txiv.yawg, ib yam nkaus li miao yog
sinicization hmoob. peb teej peb tug, peb yeej txhais tawm tau, luag
teej luag tug, peb yeej txhais tsis tawm tau.
another piv txwv to counter the above. lub npe, wu ba.yue, pheej hnov
hnov + nyeem lawv hu nws ua vwj paj yias. lus suav tsis muaj tus
consonant "v", tiam si, lawv siv "w" in place of "v" (i.e. wang =
vang, wu = vu). hauv lus suav, ba.yue yog yim hli (ba = yim/8, yue =
hli). nyob hauv lus suav ces, lawv hu nws ua vwj yim hli. raws li ntau
ntau hom tib neeg pom pom los lawm, cov me nyuam yug lub 8 hli ntau
tus ces tuag xwb xwb li, TIAM SI, cov ho ciaj no ces, ho ntse ntse
kiag li. wu ba.yue ntse heev heev thiab yeej muaj keeb kwm hais tias
nws yog yug 8 hli hauv plab tawm los, ces suav thiaj li hu vwj 8 hli.
tiam si, hmoob ho hu ua paj yias. so in this case, there is meaning in
both languages, but still, wu ba.yue yeej yog hmoob.
saib seb nej ho puas tau hnov tias me nyuam yug 8 hli ntau tus ces
tuag. cov yug lub 7 hli mas ciaj, yug lub 9 hli mas ciaj, tiam si, ua
li cas yug 8 hli no ho tuag. thaum kuv hais 7 hli, 8 hli, 9 hli, kuv
tsis yog hais july, august, september nawb. kuv hais the months of
