Bringing together Lao Americans in continuing their cultural legacy through storytelling and the arts. Take off your shoes and join us.


The trauma of war isn't easy to talk about, but in hiding it, that history becomes forgotten, misunderstood. For future generations, this turns into questions about their identities, not knowing what to ask and whom to seek those answers from.

We believe the arts is that link to initiating dialogue.

Our story


It started with one Lao artist meeting another Lao artist. Then another, and another, until we realized we were all telling similar stories. Although that work has been recognized in the arts world and has reflected our culture and community, it did not actively seek to engage the very people who inspired it. Until now.

Their Story

Happy Holidays! Our team of volunteers (also known as the #LITHCrew) share their Thanksgiving thoughts and realize they don't know how to say "turkey" "mashed potato" or "gravy" in Lao, but there is a special way to pronounce it.

Also, we're officially #TeamJaewBi.
