ABOUT

For the most part coming up from Chiang Mai, Thailand, my mother’s family predominantly consists of women; sisters, cousins, aunts, and at the center, my grandmother, Ninlawan Pinyo. For as long as I can remember, this maternal dance has been choreographed by “Yai Nin,” herself one of 11 children and the custodian of the family business: a famous brand of Thai sausage. My friends and I have jokingly coined her “The Sausage Queen of Chiang Mai.”

Although reserved in her old age, her success and support has propelled a generation of Thai Americans to call the United States home. Outliving her husband, Veenarong, by twenty years, she has supported our family from afar while residing above her factory, under the care of a whole community of workers, housekeepers, drivers, and even Buddhist monks.

Her motherdome is a common, yet under-recognized story among Asian-American families.

It’s time she told her story.
