Local Immigrant Population*

5000

*Immigrant Population is an estimated sum of the number of naturalized Americans from this country and citizens from this country living in the Seattle Metro Area under any sort of immigration visa.  It does not count the American offspring or descendants of immigrants from this country, which can go back many generations and account for large numbers of people.  1,000 is the default number when we don’t have a better count.

Languages:

Lao.

Notes:

Laotians encompass many different ethnic groups in SE Asia.  Turmoil in the country drove out large numbers in the 1970’s and 80’s.  King County has benefited from their arrival where many started new lives.  If you want to experience Laotian food and meet Laotian people, then you will not need to fly anywhere.  A little bit of Internet research and you should be enjoying an authentic Lao meal nearby today!
