    Lao Lao is a story of hope and home. - When our parents arrived in America, they felt isolated by the shock of Western culture. In the face of so many unknowns, they settled in North Carolina, where an old friend from Laos lived. Once there, he introduced our parents to other Lao refugees, extensions of home in this new land. - With a Laotian community in America, our parents no longer felt alone. They were able to continue the customs of their homeland. On several occasions, they gathered in a circle on a handwoven mat on the floor (the floor is considered a dining room table in Laos). They shared Lao dishes whose recipes they had memorized from watching their parents cook. They reminisced about the life they left behind, their families, their friends. They raised their glasses and created a community that promised to remember their home country and to honor it in the land of endless opportunities. - Their dishes hold the memories of their family, culture and traditions. They can’t wait to share with you! #laofoodmovement #laofood #laos #laolaofoodtruck #laorefugees #littlelaoinamerica

    Met this sweet lady at the local market last weekend. Before arriving to Missoula, all I knew about Missoula was that it was not very divers but things like that never stopped me from visiting a place. I was surprised however to learn that Missoula had a nice size Hmong population. For those who don’t know, Hmongs are Mountainous people from Laos and for those who don’t know, I am half Lao. Between 1979 and 1980, nearly 300 Hmongs immigrated here with the help of the International Rescue Committee, the same organization that helped my family immigrate to Virginia in 1982. I don’t often get to speak Lao during my travels but I did that day.... #hmong #hmongrefugees #refugees #mytribe #laorefugees

    Annual photo for #MothersDay ✨ My mae’s first job (or one of the firsts) in the U.S. was at a burrito factory in Texas. She later did work in sewing and clothing alterations, and made most of our clothes growing up. It’s not a surprise then that I love burritos and making my own clothes. ☺️ She was about 27 years old in this picture, younger than all of her kids are now. #laorefugees #refugees #laoamerican

    It all started with 2 refugee girls and a dream. Nearly 4 years ago, we started our company in the kitchen, slanging sauces out of the trunks of our cars. During this incredible journey, we have met so many amazing souls taking the same path, leaping from their 9-5 jobs and becoming full time business owners. Whether it be a business in apparel, food, machinery, entertainment, education or non-profit organizations, we all have one common background; we are refugees or children of refugees from #Laos. We have so much respect and admiration for anyone who isn’t afraid to follow their passions and use their platform to make a positive impact in society. We came from humble beginnings and went against all odds to be where we are today. This is only the beginning of a story that we must write for the next generations to follow. And for those who think it’s too late to follow your dreams, just remember that a person’s past does not determine their future. A person’s present choices does. Where you want to be tomorrow is what you persistently do today.💜✨ #grit #humbledbeginnings #laorefugees #2girlsandadream #neverforgetwhereyoucamefrom #fbf #inspirationfriday #ninjafoods www.theninjafoods.com

    Look what just surfaced. An adorable family picture of when we were at the Napho Refugee Camp in Thailand. We were so young, FOB & innocent and mom and dad were still alive. I miss and love you both mom and dad. Let’s see if y’all can identify me in the picture. #WeAreRefugees #LaoRefugees #LaoRefugeeStory

    Join Dr. Lao Lao Hour on FB. After seeing a Lao mother’s tragic post of her very talented young inspiring artist/actor/pianist son tragic suicide last week, I started this FB page to bring mental awareness to the Lao community and the community at large. Also a place to foster support of others struggling, to learn to live mentally healthy, and learn about mindfulness meditation practices as coping strategies. The more we know, the better we become aware of ourselves and others. #drphoukham #DrLaoLaoHour #curestigma #Lao #curestigma💚 #LaoMentalHealth #laorefugees #LaoAmericans #mentalhealthawareness #Mindfulness #meditation #lovingkindness #compassion

    ❤️💙💙⚪️💙💙❤️ #Repost @atticus_fynch ・・・ Every #worldrefugeeday I share our refugee photo taken in the early 80s. (I’m one of the twins in pink — can you guess which one? 😜). I am proud to live in a city that serves as one of the largest refugee resettlement communities in the country. According to Mayor Darrell Steinberg’s welcoming address today at the Sacramento World Refugee Day, Sacramento currently ranks #1 in the country for refugee resettlement. ♥️ #istandwithrefugees #refugees #laorefugees

    During the 1970s and 1980s, over 1.3 million Southeast Asian refugees resettled to the US because of devastating war and conflict in the region. This is still the largest group of refugees, from any region, to ever resettle in the U.S. As monumental as the Southeast Asian refugee crisis was, the 1.3 million figure now seems small in comparison to the 68.5 million people estimated to be displaced worldwide by force and natural disaster, according to UNHCR. Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Myanmar, and Somalia are among the countries with the highest refugee populations today. The number of refugees in the world continues to grow. Now more than ever it is important to stand with refugees and welcome them.
