Description

The Hmong were among the many cultural minorities and indigenous tribal populations who were recruited and trained by the French to fight alongside them against communist anticolonial movements in Vietnam. Despite fighting alongside the French and the U.S., the Hmong and their stories have largely been forgotten for the past 60 years by both countries. Part of Professor Babana-Hampton's motivation for creating these two documentaries was to document their experiences and to highlight the intertwined nature of Hmong, French and American histories. LIB 100/201 APPROVED!
