The Nyiakeng Puachue Hmong alphabet was created in the 1980s by the Reverend Cher Vang Kong (Txawj Vaag Koo) for use in his United Christians Liberty Evangelical Church. It is used to write the Hmong Dau and Hmong Njua languages, two closely related Hmong-Mien language also known as White Hmong and Green Hmong.

The alphabet is used in printed material and videos in the church, which has been based in various states in the USA, including California, Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Colorado. The alphabet is also used to some extent in Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, France and Australia.

Nyiakeng Puachue Hmong is also known as Hmong Kong Hmong, Pa Dao Hmong, the Chervang script (Ntawv Txawj Vaag) or Ntawv Paj Ntaub ('flower-cloth writing system').
