Lao Minnesotan Artists Heritage Month

Posted: Aug 15, 2012

  The office of Governor Dayton presented Lao Minnesotan artists this August with a certificate recognizing their contributions to the community. This is the first time such a recognition has been formally given by the state.

Earlier this year, a grassroots coalition of Lao Minnesotan artists, activists and community builders and their allies across the country had expressed hope that such a month would be established that would inspire and energize Lao Minnesotans to continue creating and to remember their deep artistic and cultural heritage, and the infinite potential of the arts. They presented their request to the governor. Soon they received their answer.

The certificate was presented to “the Lao Minnesotan artists in recognition of their international, national, and local contributions to communities. As the third largest Lao populated state, Minnesota recognizes the significance of the dedication and performance of these artists. Therefore, with the appreciation and respect of the people of Minnesota, this certificate is presented to Lao Minnesotan Artists. Celebrated: August, 2012.”
