Hu Plig: Soul Calling – A Hmong Tradition

Saint Paul Public Library is celebrating Hmong New Year all month long, hosting virtual programs with local families, authors, and artists, culminating in our grand virtual entertainment showcase by LUXE event on November 27.

In our first video by Shawn Vue Visuals, the Vue family invites us into their home for their soul calling tradition, during which offerings are prepared to call souls back and reunite with the body. Homes are swept to remove negative energy, and to prepare for the blessings to come in the new year.
