The Hmong Oral History Project works to connect the younger generations of Hmong, and the broader communities in which many Hmong live, with resources describing Hmong culture in Laos, the Secret War in Southeast Asia, and stories of the Hmong immigrant experience, facilitating greater intercultural and intergenerational understanding.

This project was completed with the support of the Elder Council of the HAMAA, the Hmong Cultural and Resource Center, Concordia University’s Center for Hmong Studies, and Concordia University’s Faculty Development Program.

Work from this project contributed to the writing of Dr. Hillmer's book, A People's History of the Hmong.
