This early MAM exhibition presented the art, language, and music of the Hmong, people originally from Laos, Thailand, and China who migrated to Montana in the 1970s. Twenty-two interviews were conducted, transcribed, and translated, Hmong cultural events were video-recorded, and MAM commissioned an embroidered story cloth depicting the lives of the mong refugees since their arrival in Missoula. The publication features statements from Hmong artists and community members and is edited by Susan Lindbergh Miller, Bounthavy Kiatoukaysy, and Tou Yang. Hmong/English text.
