Abstract

In this study I examined the history of the Hmong people and their funeral practices. I explored the relationship between what is learned and experienced in the Hmong traditional funeral practices and ELCA Hmong ministry practices in the United States of America. Furthermore, I also learned to understand the behaviors, core values, and clan system and people’s involvement in collaboration in relation to funeral practices in the Hmong community.
