Abstract

Although today thousands remain in camps in various Southeast Asian countries, over a million [Tai Dam] refugees have been relocated to a number of different countries. The present study picks up on the theme of resettled refugees and specifically examines what has happened to one particular group: the Tai Dam formerly of Laos and before that Vietnam, who today reside in Iowa. Specifically, this thesis focuses on the process of adjustment and acculturation as it has taken place among these individuals.
