Hmong students celebrate their culture at D.C. Everest

Posted:

Hmong students from all over the Wausau area came to D.C. Everest high school to celebrate Hmong culture.

The students showed love for their heritage through songs they sang in their native tongue, and by performing dances in traditional Hmong costumes.

Organizers of the event said they put on the show because they believe it will help keep their culture alive.

"Our youth is our future, and basically because they're our future they need to know our culture, and if they don't know our culture, basically our Hmong culture, and our future, and our legacy is disappearing," said Yee Leng Xiong, one of the event organizers.

Organizers said Hmong students who were part of the event came from Wausau West, Wausau East, and D.C. Everest.
