Crossing East: Refugee Dreams Revisited

Listen to Stage & Studio May 31st at 11 am on KBOO 90.7 FM. Dmae Roberts and MediaRites present Refugee Dreams Revisted as part of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. This special hosted by Margaret Cho focuses on the experiences of Southeast Asian refugees in Portland, and features Cambodian musician Daran Kravanh.

The refugees who came to America were Vietnamese, Cambodian, Laotian and the ethnic minorities from Laos—the Mien and Hmong. Most had fought on the same side and helped the US military in the war in Vietnam. The Mien and Hmong — the rural people in Laos — were particularly vulnerable for helping the CIA with covert operations. Staying in Laos was not an option.
