Bear Creek’s Hmong Club enriches students about the ancient history of their ethnic group, and culture. For the past three years, the Hmong club have had hand-made costumes, usually made by their older generation. The council, consisting of Kaetlyn Xiong as president, Lily Lor as vice-president, Natalie Vang as the secretary, and Mao Thao as the treasurer, creates their own unique dance; they base the moves after the lyrical meaning of the song with hand gestures being the focus of the dance. The club meets three times a week to practice girls and couples dance. On top of the weekly practices, Hmong club enjoys organizing picnic events and get-togethers to form a closer bond among the members.
