Materials Donors: We collect materials by and about Hmong (Hmoob teej tug) in 13 categories (see Collections). We are especially interested in collecting VHS videos, cassettes, and refugee materials, an important part of Hmong culture not preserved by other organizations. You can bring donated items to the Archives during regular hours (Mon., Wed., and Fri., 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.) or call for an appointment (651 621-5469), or you can bring them to Hmong ABC at Hmongtown Market and Hmong Village, both in Saint Paul, seven days a week, between 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
