Nicky Krieger-Loos is from Dudelange/Luxembourg. In 1987, as a member of the La Ronde Bettembourg folk dancing group, she visited for the first time communities in the Midwest settled by Luxembourg immigrants in the 19th century. Over the years has stayed in touch with numerous descendants of these immigrants. With her husband Carlo and their children Claire, Louis and Lucie, they have moved around the world and lived in the USA, Austria, Russia, China, and currently in Brasilia. This way she has discovered many new food styles, recipes and attended cooking classes in many different places. An optician by training, she now pursues her hobbies cooking, baking crazy birthday cakes, quilting, and upcycling all kinds of fabrics from worn-out jeans to her children’s old clothes. She also teaches cooking classes with traditional dishes as well as folk dances with Luxembourg descendants in their communities in Brazil.

The LACS Cultural Conference has gone virtual this year! We are celebrating the centenary of suffrage movements in both Luxembourg and the United States. Universal suffrage was adopted into law in Luxembourg in 1919, and women’s suffrage was ratified into law in the United States in 1920. Our expert speakers and their topics show how individuals worked together to create movements and built upon each other’s accomplishments. Join us as we dig deeper into the history of these suffrage movements and show the similarities and differences of events happening at the same time on different continents. There is a $5 registration fee for this conference to help offset technology costs. Everyone who registers will receive a free recording of the conference to watch at any time!
