Russian North Folklore Expedition – 2010

This was the second season of our project “Russian North Folklore Expedition.”  We documented oral histories, folklore and songs of those who emigrated into this area that had been a part of Finland before the Winter War (1939-40).  We also spent a few days on the island of Valaam.
