     Choua Xiong is a graduate student pursing a joint degree in Cultural Anthropology and Educational Policy Studies. She is broadly interested in how educational discourses shapes and influences Hmong people’s national, ethnic, and racial identities. She worked on numerous projects on racial and gender identity of Hmong-Americans in the Midwest. In 2012, Choua went to Yunnan Province, China, on a project funded by the Freeman ASIANetwork Fellowship, to explore the history of Chi You the mythical Hmong king. This China Hmong History project broadens her scope on understanding how education (formal and in-formal) influences how Hmong communities make meaning of their national and ethnic identities transnationally. Her current research will draw on Hmong people’s educational experiences in Laos and Thailand to further explore this interest.
