It's been 40 years since the Hmong arrival in Minnesota. To mark that anniversary, we're doing a series of shows throughout the year about the Hmong community.

We talked with three Hmong artists — a painter, a writer, and a spoken word artist — all of whom have made their Hmong identity part of their work.
