Abstract
"Orphan Boy the Farmer" (in both English & Hmong) is a series of three short stories that portray the life of an (fictitious) orphaned Hmong farm boy. The three stories illustrate hazards, behaviors, consequences, and control strategies related to farm work assigned to Hmong children and depict safe work practices of three tasks: Rototilling, Knife Use, and Marketplace Skills. Imagery and humor are incorporated as well as the serious consequences of unsafe practices. Hmong folk characters (e.g. an orphan boy, his older brother and nasty sister-in-law, three princesses and benevolent spirit) and settings are the context for the stories and create a comfortable and supportive atmosphere through which children and adults can learn about safety and health when working in the garden or on the farm.
