Mother's Song, Tony Innouvong

Journal of Southeast Asian American Education and Advancement

An ode to the Lao refugee experience, "Mother's Song" celebrates the resilient struggle of those displaced by the war in Laos. Like many Lao people, Tony's mother and family desperately fled Laos during the 1970s for refuge in Thai refugee camps. She and her family would later emigrate to the US where they were challenged with building a new life on new land.
