Engage all five senses while immersed in Hmong culture, storytelling, food, and tradition.

Join MHC and TPT for a multimedia workshop designed to empower you to use the TPT documentary, “America’s Secret War,” and companion toolkit to bring this important history into your classroom. Designed by educators for educators in collaboration with MHC and TPT, these tools will spark dialogue, encourage critical thinking and exploration, and will build deeper understanding about the Secret War’s link to the Vietnam War, Veteran and refugee experiences, and Hmong identity and culture today.

Learn from:

  • Hmong community members, including Lee Pao Xiong, director of the Center for Hmong Studies at Concordia University
  • Educators who developed the toolkit

“Minnesota Remembers Vietnam: America’s Secret War”

In the shadows of the Vietnam War, the CIA conducted a secret war in Laos that relied on Hmong soldiers to prevent the threat of communism from spreading deeper into Southeast Asia. Tens of thousands died, both in the fight and in the escape.
