This year marks the 9th year our community in diaspora has recognized lao American Artists Heritage Month. In 2012, because of timing issues and other logistical challenges and uncertainty it would even be approved, we only received a certificate of recognition.
But with persistence over time we were presented with a full proclamation from the Governors of Minnesota. In 2015, we saw the first time it was officially recognized as Lao American Artists Heritage Month. We hope you all celebrate with joy, inspiration, and creativity, and thank you for being a part of our shared journey!
