In May 2015, Utah State University's Fife Folklore Archives (FFA), Folklore Program, and The American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, with help from the Karen community, hosted a Field School for Cultural Documentation: "Voices: Refugees in Cache Valley." Cache Valley, Utah, is the home of Burmese Muslim, Karen, and Eritrean refugees. Students documented the stories of these communities; which is an important goal of Utah State University's Fife Folklore Archives. The subject matter of these interviews reflects the lives of refugees and may contain distressing content.
This exhibit documents and examines some of the experiences of Cache Valley refugees from Kayin State (formerly Karen State) in Myanmar (formerly Burma) and has been approved by the interviewed community scholars.
