Collision of the U.S. and Hmong: demands for change and belonging
Presenter: MaiGer Moua, adjunct faculty for the History Department at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and Crisis Operations Manager at North Central Health Care
The presentation will focus on the resettlement of Hmong refugees and current issues affecting Hmong Americans in Marathon County. Beginning in the 1960’s, there were parallel fights for self-determination and inclusion during the civil rights movement in the U.S. and the secret war in Laos. The secret war and Vietnam War resulted in mass displacement of Southeast Asians and resettlement of refugees to the U.S., including Marathon County. By situating refugee resettlement within historical context, we will be able to understand the ways in which the Hmong have been at the center of community debates about inclusion and belonging.
