You are invited to attend our 17th annual Widening the Circle Indigenous Education Symposium. Due to the pandemic, we will be hosting a virtual speaker series bringing HMoob and Indigenous speakers to talk about how indigenous communities are revitalizing indigenous healing. We will have speakers scheduled monthly from May to October. Neng Now will be our second speaker in our Revitalizing Indigenous Healing speaker series on Monday, June 14th, 2021 at 7:00pm - 8:30pm CST.
Neng Now is a HMong artist and researcher. He was born in Chiang Kham Refugee Camp in Thailand and grew up in Wisconsin. Neng graduated from Harvard University in Human Developmental and Regenerative Biology. He has traveled extensively throughout the world - including Southeast Asia, where he received a Fullbright Research Grant to research HMong whistled and musical linguistic in Laos, in 2020.
Neng will share his exploration into HMong ways of thinking. In particular, how HMong music and language have helped and continues to help the HMong community when dealing with sadness and diaspora, along with enabling individual and communal healing.
