The story cloth, made for the author by her aunt and uncle, chronicles the life of the Hmong people in their native Laos and their eventual immigration to the United States.

From a refugee camp in Thailand, Dia Cha's aunt and uncle, Chue and Nhia Thao Cha, sent her the story cloth that is the inspiration and the centerpiece for this important 11 1/4 x 8 1/2" book about the Hmong. The cloth they stitched depicts the history of the Hmong, whose culture reaches back thousands of years to China, and stretches from Asia to North America, where over 100,000 Hmong have settled in the years since the Vietnam War (including many in Wisconsin). Hmong means "free people," Dia writes in her introduction.

Dia Cha's story is shared by many Hmong Americans who made a long journey to freedom. The story cloth stiched by her aunt and uncle describes the Hmong people's long and dangerous journey. For Hmong people, story cloths are a bridge between past and present. For all Americans, Dia's Story Cloth is a universal story of the search for freedom. This bilingual edition is part of the Hmong Translation Initiative coordinated by Motheread.Fatheread – MN, a curriculum-based family literacy program of the Minnesota Humanities Commission (MHC). The purpose of this project is to help Hmong families develop literacy skills in their first language as well as in English. Because of the Moob Ntsuab (Green Mong) and Hmoob Dawb (White Hmong) dialects are different, the translation committee has translated the English text into both. The Hmong text is featured next to the English, and the book’s original artwork is maintained.

This is a good example of a particular Hmong genre--the story of the escape from Laos to Thailand under the threats from the North Vietnamese. Very well done, good references. A rare treat.

... from China over Laos to the refugee camps of Thailand and then to the U.S. of America.
Where the Hmong - almost an entire generation had to flee from the consequences of the "Secret War" that took place in Laos - build solid, self-sustaining and heavily working groups of immigrates...

Yet in the 1950s the Hmong were forced to take sides in the guerrilla warfare, divided between their loyalty to the Royal Lao government backed by the USA and the Communist Pathet Lao nationalists, supported by Northern Vietnam and the USSR. Thousands of Hmong men and boys were recruited by the CIA for rescue and reconnaissance and other secret guerilla tasks.
Then the Pathet Lao invaded their territory while the CIA bombed their villages to leave behind only burned ground. Then, in 1975 the Pathet Lao took over and the Hmong had to flee.
A book which masterly describes some poor Hmong's getaway is Curse of the Pogo Stick: A Dr. Siri Investigation Set in Laos by Colin Cotterill when our dear Dr Siri is held hostage by a group of Hmong women and children...

What I am reviewing here is the book of Dia Cha's Story Cloth, stitched by Chue and Nhia Thao Cha, full of colourful fotos.
Masterly - like every Hmong story cloth - it is hand-embroidered. No patterns are used, no measurements an taken. The needlework is done by eye, and comes out perfectly every time.
So look at the picture right on the double page in the middle of the book:
You will see Hmong People dressed in their traditional black robes coming from China going to Burma and to Laos to arrive in Thailand, partly in Refugee camps. And then getting their visas an enter the Jumbo Jet to be flown to the USA.

After the story cloth story there is the history of the Hmong whose name simply means "Free People"...
And nothing else they ever have wanted and will ever want to be - Free People!

To know more about the Hmongs - apart of the yet mentioned Curse of the Pogo Stick (Dr Siri Paiboun Mystery 5) by Colin Cotterill, I personally own Folk Stories of the Hmong: Peoples of Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam (World Folklore Series) and an other book, Hmong: History of a People by Keith Quincy (this one I have yet to read :).)
Often the outcomes from the sold books - also from those in the bibliography - are given to International Refugee Projects to sustain the Hmong refugees who have lost everything - besides their Loved Ones and Family, too ...
