AIC, SASU plan trip to Twin Cities on Hmong history, culture

The American Intercultural Center and the Southeast Asian Student Union are organizing a one-day trip to the We Are Hmong Minnesota exhibit at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul. Come and learn more about the Hmong culture. In addition, the museum trip includes storytelling led by Lt. Nhia-Long Vu as part of the Stories from a Hmong Secret Warrior panel. Also part of the day is a visit to the nearby Hmong Village market — the Twin Cities have the largest urban Hmong population in America, roughly 65,000 residents — with unique fruits, vegetables, traditional Hmong food, clothing and much more. The date is Saturday, Oct. 17, departing at 7 a.m. from the Studio Arts Blue parking lot with an estimated return of 11 p.m. The fee of only $10 covers museum entrance and coach bus fare. The signup deadline is Monday the 12th at the AIC. For more on the exhibit or market.
