Paj ntaub Display - Oct. 24 to Nov. 4

textile with human and animal figures

Prime Performance - Monday, October 24 through Friday, November 4

In cooperation with the Hmong Museum in St. Paul, Minnesota, the PAC lobby will have a display of Paj ntaub, an integral part of Hmong culture for centuries.  These intricate textiles depict history, traditional life in Laos, Hmong New Year, folk tales and neighboring people. The Hmong story cloths or flower cloths build upon one another to help provide a holistic understanding of the Hmong culture and history.

This display is part of a project Celebrating Hmong Culture Through the Arts which also includes a screening of Being Hmong Means Being Free and a performance of The Latehomecomer.

 


Presented in collaboration with the NYS Writers Institute.  Funding support provided by University at Albany Foundation, University Auxiliary Services, Office of Intercultural Student Engagement and the Alumni Association through the Grandma Moses Fund.
