Little Laos on the Prairie

Since the first annual Lao American Writers Summit gathering took place in Minneapolis back in August 2010, like-minded Lao Americans Danny Khotsombath and Chanida Phaengdara Potter decided to write away about their experiences as Lao Americans raised in the Mild Mild Midwest. We also roped in our guest BLAOgger and award-winning Lao American writer, Bryan Thao Worra.

With the ingenious name creation, Little Laos on the Prairie was born on October 24, 2011, with the goals of telling our stories, sharing our history and our love and fascination of pop culture, community, and news that connect the diaspora communities in the Midwest back to the Mekong memories of Southeast Asia.

It’s in our mantra to blog every day on anything and everything from Lao food to the latest news!
