From the Wellspring: Faith, Soil, Tradition
Folk Arts from Ukrainian Culture in North Dakota
By Troyd A. Geist

  • This 35-page, full-color book shares the rich cultural arts and traditions of Ukrainians in North Dakota. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, Ukrainians came to North Dakota in search of land. While starting over in this new land, they held on to what was familiar to them: their identity, folk arts, and traditions. This book focuses on four traditions: embroidery, decorative ritual bread making and wheat-weaving, pysanky (decorated Easter eggs), and cymbaly (hammered dulcimer) making and playing. The book also has a natural dyes and symbolism section describing the colors and designs used on pysanky.
