Living Hmong Life Project
In 2015, four photo albums containing hundreds of photos of early Hmong settlement in La Crosse were donated to La Crosse County Historical Society.
The photos have been taken out of the albums and are in the process of being scanned into the computer.
In addition to preserving the photos, we are collaborating with the Hmoob Cultural and Community Agency, to identify the photos so that they can be used in future exhibitions and research.
Funding is currently is being sought to create an online, community created exhibit of the photos.
This is the beginning of documenting the history of Hmong resettlement in La Crosse.
