For the past 6 months, the Wing Luke Asian Museum has been working with representatives from the Hmong community in Seattle to plan and design the Hmong exhibit at the WLAM. The grand opening was March 4th, at 5PM and was very successful. There was a large group of support from the community to see this display of Hmong culture.
The dancing group Silver Kiss performed a traditional Hmong dance while traditional snacks were sampled, including sticky rice (mov nplaum) and Hmong sausage (hnyuv ntxwm Hmoob). After the opening introductions, the group toured the newly opened exhibit entitled “Paj Ntaub: Stories of Hmong in Washington” as well as the other interesting collections in the Asian museum.
