Fall, 2010 Worksheet for VIDEO: “The Split Horn” Synopsis of the film: “THE SPLIT HORN” is a documentary about a Hmong shaman and his family living in Appleton, Wisconsin. Chronicling the 17-year journey of Paja Thao and his family from the mountains of Laos to the heartland of America, this poignant film shows a shaman's struggles to maintain his ancient traditions as his children embrace American culture. After fighting valiantly for the United States in the Vietnam War, many Hmong like the Thao family were forced to flee their homeland in Southeast Asia. Since 1975, over 200,000 Hmong refugees have resettled in the U.S. 1. What do Hmong believe about U.S. hospitals as “places of healing”? 2. The film follows Paja Thao, a Hmong Shaman. What is his traditional role in the spiritual and physical lives of the Hmong? 3. How has Paja Thao’s biography been shaped by Hmong society? How has it been shaped by American society?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
