Last October, a Hmong man here in Sacramento was shot to death as the result of an affair he was having with another man’s wife. It’s gotten a lot of media attention.
Today, the Sacramento Bee published a lengthy article titled Hmong Leaders Ask: Could Old Ways Have Headed Off Slaying?. It gives a good overview, I think, of Hmong culture and the traditional use of clan elders to mediate disputes.
It’ll a good piece for me to use in school tomorrow. I thought others might find it useful, too.
