Hmong 101 program

Txongpao Lee, executive director of the Hmong Cultural Center in St. Paul.

It took nine years for Txongpao Lee, executive director of the Hmong Cultural Center in St. Paul, to make his way from Laos to Minnesota.

He and Dr. Mark Pfeifer, director of programs, development and librarian at the center, presented the story of the Hmong people Saturday afternoon at the McLeod County Historical Museum in Hutchinson.

The presentation was the first event in this year's One Book, One Community program sponsored by Heart of Hutch's Connect Committee.
