photo For the 4th year in a row, the North High School Hmong Leadership Council performance was warmly received at Lincoln-Erdman Elementary School. The traditional ball tossing game was included in the performances and teachers Cale Schueffner and Kirsten Thiel participated. The high school students narrated and acted out a Hmong folktale. Students sang, played guitar and danced. Students were treated to a group of three Hmong girls playing the "Qeej," a traditional Hmong instrument. The instrument is usually played only by males, so this was an neat spin on tradition. At the conclusion of the presentation, two spectators - Zavin King and Isabella Webb - were dressed up in traditional Hmong clothing. The presentation was a meaningful way to teach Lincoln-Erdman students an appreciation of the Hmong culture.
