Laos has been known as Lan Xang, the Land of a Million Elephants, since it was a remote, reclusive, ancient kingdom. Elephants are part of Lao peoples’ blood, bones and essential beings – as important as roots are to trees.
It is with the understanding and respect for this connection that we share with you Lao’s song for elephants. We hope you sing it with love and joy and that it ignites an ever-deepening promise to protect and save our elephants. Always and forever.
