Boxes and Walls 2012

This project was to allow viewers to live/experience a day in the Hmong history. The piece of history we chose to cover was the Hmong journey to America. Starting with China, we led the viewers through the mountains to Laos and from there, the journey through the jungles and across the river to refugee camps in Thailand. Then, onwards to the United States. After the journey, we showed a video (quite graphic and horrifying of the real journey from Laos to Thailand).

To end it, each member participating from CHS shared piece of their's or their parents' current status in America.
