Abstract Agriculture is an occupation with high death and injury rates. Children in rural American farm families are often a necessary and desired part of the workforce. Hmong farm families' values as they relate to work are not essentially different from their mainstream counterparts although their beliefs and practices may seem unusual to outsiders. Hmong children work or play alongside their parents in the field and at the market. It might seem appropriate to translate existing text-based safety information into Hmong to prevent childhood injury on the farm. However, current English-language materials do not include many tasks that Hmong children are doing, are in a format not understood by non-literate Hmong parents, and often use inappropriate imagery and colors.
