Paj Ntaub Circle
Paj Ntaub Circle provides a safe space and a support network for Hmoob women in the La Crosse area connecting them culturally, socially, emotionally, and politically while at the same time preserving the traditional needlework of the Hmoob paj ntaub. Hmoob womxn and young girls can reclaim and rebuild their identity in re-creating the power of traditional arts and roles, which were at one time, the backbone of Hmoob society.
Goals of Paj Ntaub Circle:
Using paj ntaub needlework as a tool in which Hmoob womxn and girls can reclaim and rebuild their identities;
Create brave spaces where Hmoob womxn are able to share and build sisterhood
Be a confidential, safe, and open dialogue to support other Hmoob women and the Hmoob community
When: Tuesdays events from 5pm to 7pm
Childcare and materials for paj ntaub will be provided. Writing, photography, videography, craft and other creative art forms are additional tools that will be used to explore Hmoob womxn identities. We invite all Hmoob women to join our weekly support group.
