  • The village headman (phoban) of Keokhunmeung (XB 7555), Mr. Souane, stands outside the USAID Cluster office in the Laven village of Houei Kong (XB 6473, L-56) in Attapu Province smoking a homemade cigarette made of village grown tobacco. He has come to ask assistance from the office. Of special note are his traditional Nyaheun men's earrings. The particular design is worn only by Nyaheun men, an identifying element for them.
