Saving Seeds, Saving Community: Student Interviews with Hmong Women Farmers

April 14, 2015 @ 9:40 am - 11:10 am

“I have little money, but filling a stomach is the greatest gift I can give.”

Want to know more about Hmong women’s farmers, their culture and their contributions to the Fox Valley? Then, come to this special presentation by students in this Quest III course focused on Hmong Women Farmers!

Students interviewed eight Hmong women farmers about their views on farming, family and the future. Through the expertise of eight interpreters, the students learned of the women farmers’ commitment to generosity and charity and their belief in farming as a route to health and sustainability for both the family and community. Of the eight women, all are farmers, 6 are elders, 1 is a herbalist and 1 a shaman. Together, the farmers shared generously with students their cultural knowledge and the power of their various cultural roles. Students will reveal what the Hmong women farmers taught them about what the women contribute to their families and community through their farming and how the women feel about the possibility that the future generation will not carry on the tradition of farming. These presentations will be fun and engaging with plenty of time for discussion between students and the audience.
This presentation is facilitated by Dr. Jordan Landry and provided by students from Saving Seeds, Saving Community, a Quest III course.
