Lao American Artist Heritage Month: Year of the Monkey

As our community celebrates Year of the Monkey and Lao American Artist Heritage Month, it seems appropriate to reshare this old press photo of Duangta Khantavongsa doing the Hanuman Dance at the Botanic Gardens in Denver, Colorado for the Asian Arts Festival. It was taken Sunday, August 3rd, 1986, 30 years ago. He would eventually move to Iowa and be a part of the Lao Natasinh Dance troupe in Iowa where he has continued to be an active performer.
