Re: Traditional Crafts Shown in the Streets, Culture Shorts, Sept. 2-7, Vol 9, No 33
Maintaining Slovak traditions is very important, with teaching crafts to children the number one project. My family keeps Slovak crafts alive in the Pittsburgh (USA) area, in our parish and also at the local folk festival. My wife and children know the art of painting on glass, with one hanging in the Slovak embassy in Washington, DC. I know the arts of playing the fujara, palm weaving, folk singing and dancing, and klobásy making. We have had visitors from Slovakia and have learned the customs that need to be kept. We would love to participate in the event next year to learn more and to show that American-Slovaks do keep the culture.
