Disrupting Deficit Discourses about Hmong Culture
Perspectives of Hmong Americans on Gender and Sexuality
Keywords:Hmong, Discourses, Culture, Cultural difference, Gender, Sexuality
Dominant discourses persistently portray Hmong Americans as stuck in time and tied to Hmong cultural traditions. This article suggests dominant discourses about the oppression of Hmong culture are mechanisms of White supremacy. It examines research with Hmong Americans on gender and sexuality to disrupt deficit discourses about Hmong culture. It provides recommendations for teachers to counteract dominant discourses that instantiate the values, worldviews, culture and structures of White supremacy.
