Life in Laos


To open the exhibit, we want to begin with the story of the Hmong settlement into Indo-china region shortly following the years after they left China and headed south. We want to show that there was a very structured system of governance among the Hmong people of the area.

Through this exhibit, we hope to explain through photos, artifacts and informative displays:

  • 1. Areas of Indo-China that Hmong settled into: Laos, Thailand,
       and Vietnam
  • 2. The formulation of the Kingdom of Laos
  • 3. Hmong Iconic Leaders and Village Structure
  • 4. Hmong Culture, customs and life
  • 5. Hmong contributions in forming the destiny of Laos
