Hokanson-Yang Wedding – Sib Hlub Sib Yuar


Kalia Yang & Aaron Hokanson Wedding

August 6, 2011

Not so traditionally Hmong or American, friends and family gather to celebrate. The hand-tying ceremony is an important part of many traditional Hmong ceremonies. Each element of the ceremonial table represents an element of life. Sacrifice and bounty, love and beauty, the grace there is in giving, not only goods but deeds. There is a circle of life that the Hmong draw on for fortitude and guidance and it is our awareness and calling forth for help and assistance, for strength and wisdom, to each other that the table has been built.
