Lincoln-Erdman Celebrates Hmong New Year
For the 3rd year in a row, the North High Hmong Leadership Council was warmly received at Lincoln-Erdman School. The Hmong girls danced and the Hmong boys played the qeej (a traditional Hmong instrument). The group led the traditional ball tossing game, in which teachers Shelli LeRoy and Brad Washuleski participated. The group then narrated and acted out a Hmong story. At the conclusion of the presentation, 2 spectators, Cailyn Zielinski and Mason Pond, dressed in traditional Hmong clothing. The presentation was a meaningful way to teach the Lincoln-Erdman students an appreciation of the Hmong culture. Many of Lincoln-Erdman's Hmong students took part in the day's festivities by wearing their traditional Hmong clothing. At the end of North High's presentation, the Lincoln-Erdman Hmong students (dressed in their traditional costumes), had a fashion walk.
