The So People of Laos


Laos is a country that has often gone unnoticed. One could almost say that it’s been forgotten. But today is a new day. Today we will remember Laos.

Of all the countries in South-east Asia, Laos is the poorest and least developed. It is isolated, untouched and beautifully diverse with over 148 ethno-linguistic people groups. This accounts for 6.5 million residents.

The Lao kingdom of “a million elephants” was created by King Fa Ngum in the 14th century. By the late 1800’s, Laos was colonised by France. In 1945, the U. S. entered Laos during the American-Vietnam War. However, on December 2nd, 1975, Lao communist forces, supported by Vietnam, declared independence and established the Laos Peoples Democratic Republic (Lao P.D.R). Laos is now one of the five remaining communist countries in the world.
