Hromada (“Community”) : Ukrainian Folklife in New Jersey

Saturday, Mar 27, 1982


As one of the submerged nationalities of Eastern Europe, Ukrainians posses a special intensity of ethnic identification. A major focus of this sense of ethnicity is the complex expressive behaviors known as folk culture, which includes rituals, customs, crafts, music, and dance. While Ukrainian folklife in America obviously is not a carbon copy of the Slavic folk culture of Eastern Europe, survivals and revivals of folk traditions were adapted to new environments in rural Canada and suburban and urban America. The exhibition consists of cultural artifacts such as textiles, pottery, and musical instruments.
