It’s been two years since Little Laos on the Prairie launched its online presence as the space for Lao voices on news, culture, and life.
They covered the story of Anousone Phanthavong and brought his tragic death to the forefront because mainstream media found it difficult to remember the victim and they shared nostalgic photos of Lao people at cultural events and served up the latest neo-Lao recipe for our readers to try out.
The diversity in their voices and interests is at the core of LLOTP. They believe in the culture that is captured through blogging and we are a more vibrant culture because of our compelling voices. They've invited the community to celebrate their anniversary by sharing with them whatever story you want to tell.
For those who are local in Minnesota, come ring in two years with them at their very first get together with fellow community bloggers, friends, and family:
