After an absence of three years, the internet-based Hmong Studies Journal is resuming publication.  Under the guidance of new editor, Dr. Mark Pfeifer, Director of the Hmong Resource Center at the Hmong Cultural Center in Saint Paul, MN, the 2003 issue will be accessible on in the near future.   

Articles included in the new issue are: "Hmong Americans felt needs and problems," by Professor Kou Yang, CSU Stanislaus; "The Hmong  'Dab Pog Couple' story and its significance in arriving at an understanding of Hmong ritual," by Professor Dia Cha, St. Cloud State University; "Hmong of Germany: Preliminary report on the resettlement of Lao Hmong refugees in Germany," by Tou T. Yang, Pharm.D.; "Contradictions in learning how to be Thai: A case study of a young Hmong woman," by Tracy Pilar Johnson-Messenger, Teachers College, Columbia University. 

A print version of the new issue will be available as well.  The Hmong Resource Center has received a grant of $2500 from the Saint Paul Foundation to print 500 copies of the 2003 issue.
