Polygamy is often accept by many Hmong Americans as a traditional practice and is outwardly questioned by very few. CHAT’s Youth Leadership Group (YLG) decided to explore this practice , specifically its effects on young Hmong Americans by collecting youth narratives, and is now revealing their evaluative findings through a new, dynamic theater performance called Finding My Soal.

Long ago in a land called Soal, a young girl Pa falls in love with a Prince and becomes his second wife. Disaster strikes in Soal and the royal family takes refuge in Meka Land where they experience tremendous hardships. The children are divided between their respective mothers and their father, the Prince. Everyone is trying to find their place in Meka Land and is in search of their soul.

Each performance is designed to fuel dialogue on issues related to gender equality, self empowerment and family.

Be empowered to change your perspectives on the practice of polygamy and to bring about the necessary positive changes in the development of parenthood, family and community.
