It’s been over 45 years since we have seen a large number of Hmong immigrants come to the US.
Daily from March 21 through May 15, a guest speaker will meet in different Wisconsin cities to introduce the Hmong history agenda.
The series is being focused on the Hmong Institute’s mission to educate and acknowledge communities about the Hmong culture and community while preserving its heritage.
“Even though we’ve been here for over 45 years since 1964, not many people know who we are or understand our experiences when they lived outside in rural areas communities,” says Hmong Institute Board Director Maizong Vue.
“They have not had the opportunity to bump into us or know who we are so they don’t know anything about us. So for this purpose, it’s very important that this series is air to the public,” Vue says.
In connection with these meetings with the communities, the Wisconsin Historical Society will house a ‘Hmong in Wisconsin’ exhibit that opens March 24 of this year.
