Hmong Oral History Project

Titles Hmong Oral History Project
Description The Hmong Oral History Project consists of nine interviews with Hmong men and women from the Twin Cities metropolitan area who have immigrated to Minnesota from Laos or Thailand. The interviews are made up of personal stories that describe their experiences both before and after their immigration. Nearly each interview concludes with a statement made by the narrator, a statement of hope or a piece of advice for future generations of Hmong people. COMMENTS: These interviews are the work of Charles Numrich, Linda Rossi and translator May Herr. The interviews, transcription and editing were completed by this team of people. Tapes and transcripts from this project were donated to the Minnesota Historical Society.

    It is amazing how different all people being interviewed see their experience. The females are more missing some of the respect that they had in Laos from their families. They all appreciate the ability to have more things in America
