Questions for Discussion
- Watch the video and look up additional examples of (meow) embroidery online. What colors, patterns, and shapes or designs that are recognizable and have a meaning associated with them stand out to you?
- Research the history of Miao (or Hmong) people in the United States.
- Miao embroidery is often used to record history and tell stories. Choose an important event that has taken place in your lifetime, and draw a sketch of how you would show this event visually.
