Listen Up! Northwest program 63: The Hmong and the Secret War

Listen Up! Northwest is a collaboratively produced radio magazine featuring stories of communities in action throughout the Northwest. Each broadcast highlights the work of skilled community radio producers and artists from our region, including Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.

This week, we hear the experiences of Hmong veterans who fought in the CIA's Secret War in Laos, and how the Hmong people arrived in the Pacific Northwest. (Joaquin Uy, Voices of Diversity, KBCS Seattle).

Music by DJ B-Girl and Outback.
