Hmong rice cake tub

Rice cake tub

Rice cake tub made by Xiong Pao Yang, a resident of St. Paul’s Mcdonough Housing Projects, in 1984.  The tub was used by Yang’s relatives in the St. Paul and Minneapolis area until 1995. The making of glutinous rice cakes is a communal event for Hmong families in which multiple relatives gather together in a single place.

For details, view the tub in our online collections database.
