An exhibit honoring Hmong Americans opens this weekend at the Minnesota History Center. The exhibit explores Hmong culture, history, and their immigration to the United States, and Minnesota in particular. Shown is a typical Hmong village in Laos. Before and during the war, Hmong traditionally lived in high elevation areas. Aside from their slash-and-burn agrarian lifestyle, many families also raised domestic animals, including chickens and pigs. These children made sure the livestock were fed and tended.
