BENEFITING: WAR LEGACIES PROJECT

THE STORY:

For over fifteen years the American CIA conducted a secret war in Laos. This war had devastating impacts on millions of the poorest citizens of Laos. Impacts that are still felt today. In addition, as directed by the CIA the US military dropped bombs and herbicides over vast regions of the country, giving Laos the distinction of being the most bombed country per capita in the world. But very few know of this history and the ongoing impacts of the war on the land and the people. 

You can help tell the Untold Stories of an Unknown War. Your donation will enable Jacqui Chagnon to travel with her Lao assistant to all corners of Laos to gather stories of ordinary Lao before the generation directly impacted by the Secret are no longer able to share their story.

This digital storytelling project will capture and archive the eyewitness memories of ordinary Lao citizens from all political persuasions and ethnic groups who experienced pre-war, war and post-war Laos.

Our goal is to register and archive this digital video and photo collection in the Library of Congress as well as in an archive in the Lao PDR. Excerpts of the interviews will also be edited and available on-line.
