Thousands of Cambodians fled genocide in their home country, many arriving in Minnesota in the 1980s. Minnesota's Cambodian community found healing and belonging through building what is now the largest Buddhist temple in North America in rural Hampton, Minnesota. Throughout their temple, they encode Cambodian culture and history for future generations. Produced with Carleton College.
