They exist in the trees ahead, the air above, the stones beneath, the lakes around – the spirits. Dalva Lamminmäki explained Traditions in Finno-Ugric Shamanism at the Canadian Nordic Society’s Speakers’ Series event on May 1st.
Dalva’s roots are in a community in Karelia where the spirits were omnipresent, a part of everyday life.

The Canadian Nordic Society celebrates the links and common interests between Canada and the Nordic countries: Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and Finland. Our members experience the culture of the Nordic countries and learn about their economic, social, political, and physical landscapes through an exciting program of speakers, social events, and celebrations.


Our speaker series has featured eminent Canadians and visitors including ambassadors, explorers, scientists, academics, film directors, former Prime Ministers, and well-known authors.  The Canadian Nordic Society is based in Canada's National Capital Region.
