In conjunction with the “We Are Hmong Show” at the Minnesota History Center in Saint Paul, the Center included a night of Hmong Music in its “9 Nights of Music” series, which is held in the outdoor plaza space between the State Capitol and the Cathedral of Saint Paul.
Check out these great photos of the family friendly event.
Here’s what the History Center explains about the ongoing exhibit, which marks the 40th Anniversary of the Hmong migration to Minnesota from Laos and Thailand:
November 2015 marks the 40th anniversary of the Hmong migration to Minnesota following the war in Southeast Asia. Today, the Twin Cities metro area is home to 66,000 Hmong, the largest urban Hmong population in the United States.
