orysia_traczMany of us have long hoped that Winnipeg-based Ukrainian culture guru Orysia Tracz would one day visit us here in Calgary. After all, who else knows the secrets of herbal poultices, the reasons why we throw kutia at the ceiling at Christmastime?  Who else is willing to reveal the erotic symbolism in Ukrainian folk songs?  Well, finally our patience will be rewarded!  Orysia will reveal the secrets of folk medicine and Ukrainian traditions at the UCPBA dinner meeting on May 28th. As well, she will be speaking about symbolism in Ukrainian folk songs at a separate event the night before.  Stay tuned for details!
