Library of Congress, May 9, 2005

On May 9th, the LAWA dancing troupe was whisked away again to the Library of Congress located at the James Madison Building for an encore performance in the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month event. Before the performance began the keynote speaker, Senator Daniel Kahikina Akaka, a Democrat from Hawaii humored the audience; he delivered his heart-felt speech about the many meanings of the word “aloha” which also means “love”. Then the dancers took the stage. Nah Bounheng looked on like a proud mother. The audience was mesmerized by the elaborate and colorful costumes and graceful movements. At the end of the performance the host thanked the Lao American Women Association for their participation in celebrating the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Afterwards, the dancers and the audience were invited to a reception. Senator Akaka posed for photos with the dancers and he even gave Mimi a kiss on the cheek, which delighted her immensely. The event was covered and aired on C-SPAN.
