In simple terms, Lakou, pronounced (la koo), is a Creole term for “the yard,” but its concept is profound. Lakou is a natural and familiar place to gather, where everyone has value. It is a place where we are invited to learn from each other, and a place where the goal is to collectively make progress. It is a community where diversity is welcomed, no one is famous, and everyone has a voice. You are always welcome in the Lakou.
Lakou pa’m se Lakou pa’w. — My place is your place.
