    Scope and Contents Note

    Lao Stories: Laotian American Oral History Project consists of audio and video interviews of Laotian Americans across the United States about their life experiences. Interviews were conducted by Prinston Pan, a second generation Laotian American high school student in Southern California. The interviews range from 30 minutes to over an hour in duration and were primarily conducted remotely during the 2020-2021 COVID-19 pandemic. The narrators discuss their experiences in Laos and the U.S. including the hardships they had to overcome, as well as what they hope for future generations. This project provides an in-depth, primary source on the Lao diaspora community's culture and history.
