This wonderfully educational site was funded by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Asian Pacific Endowment of the Saint Paul Foundation. Functioning as an online museum, it features 213 unique Hmong embroidery pieces, including images of animals, village life, farming, and war. The site can be easily scouted through its online exhibits, which are listed in order on the right hand side of the page, and also include examples of Hmong attire and crafts and ornaments. There is also a useful and accessible glossary and a section that outlines typical Hmong motifs and symbols, which can be accessed under the Symbols tab. Many of the items are accompanied by annotations explicating the history and culture of the Hmong, which makes for a very educational reading experience.
