Bounxou Daoheuang demonstrates the intricate art of Lao weaving; the same technique she learned from her mother and grandmother before she fled Laos in the mid 1970’s during the height of the Vietnam War. While living as a refugee in Thailand, she passed along her weaving skills to other women refugees as a means of preserving their cultural heritage. Now a Minnesotan and a weaver of 32 years, Daoheuang shares her art with her own daughter.
