Events

  • The Hmong Institute's Noj Tsiab (pre-New Year) and Thanksgiving Celebration: The Hmong Institute is hosting the Hmong Noj Tsiab (Pre-New Year) Celebration on Thursday November, 17th from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. at 4402 Femrite Drive, Madison. Noj tsiab pronounced "naw chia" is the meal held the night before the Hmong New Year festival begins. Noj Tsiab and Noj Peb Caug (New Year Festival) are traditionally celebrated after the harvest season. The Noj Tsiab tradition constitutes ritual activities such as a hu plig (soul calling), lwm qaib (bless the new year while washing away all negative energy with the old year), giving thanks to the ancestor's spirit for a good harvest and for keeping the family healthy. A meal or feast is then served to the guests.

  • Birding Backpacks + Madison Audubon Event, Always Available + November 15th: Madisonians who are bird curious can check out a Birding Backpack from Madison Public Library for up to one week. Backpacks include binoculars and field guides for one adult and one child, as well as a local birding guide that highlights locations close to each library. This project was made possible thanks to donations from the Feminist Bird Club - Madison and the Madison Public Library Foundation.

On November 15, we'll be hosting an event in collaboration with Madison Audubon to highlight the connections between race and birds with Brigitte Fielder at Meadowridge Library. The UW-Madison professor will weave together the historical context of antislavery imagery, African American folklore, children's stories about abolitionist views, and more, as she illuminates human-animal relationships that illustrate Black people's resistance to oppression.
