About this product
- DescriptionThis study examines one of our newest immigrant groups in America: the Hmong refugees from Laos. In ethgraphic fashion, the author gives the reader an intimate portrait of Hmong family life in Wisconsin. The book first traces the stages of the Hmong refugee experience and then looks at how Hmong families are adjusting and adapting to their new lives in America. The primary focus is on daily life routines. From this perspective one gains an appreciation of Hmong kinship networks and community. Women's activities are woven throughout this study to highlight the roles they play in their family's social and ecomic adaptation. From a family centered focus, the reader gains an appreciation for how the Hmong see their own adaptational process and how they represent and define their Hmongness in America. Part of the New Immigrants Series, edited by Nancy Foner.
