Upcoming presentation and discussion:

Finno-Ugric Guardian Spirits and Animal Mothers: Pohjola Mythology and
Ecological Knowledge

Research Associates' Seminar Series

Wednesday, 12 October 2016 @ 4:00 PM

Finno-Ugric Guardian Spirits and Animal Mothers—Pohjola Mythology and
Ecological Knowledge

DVD Short Documentary, 35 min. Filming & Editing, Kirre Koivunen,
Director Kirre Koivunen & Kaarina Kailo,

Production Myyttikehrä & Valokuvalabo, 2014.

The documentary introduces the mythological cosmos of Finno-Ugric
peoples providing information on traditional ecological knowledge and
the culture of feminine nature beings. The film makers have brought
new insights to bear on the links between the motif of the Tree of
Life, a three-layered universe and the visual language of Goddess
textiles among Finno-Ugric people. It consists of recurring symbols
that communicate a common belief system embraced particularly by
women. Traces of ancient value systems and cosmovisions are contained
also on rock art and in power places. The symbolic language revealed
is closely tied with the culture of giving back and a harmonious,
balanced relationship between humans and nature.

Professor Kaarina Kailo, is a women's and cultural studies scholar,
and Kirre Koivunen, is a free-lance journalist and documentary film
maker. Together they will present their DVD on Eco socially
sustainable "motherland" cultures and their traditional ecological
knowledge. Kaarina has worked as Professor of Women's Studies at Oulu
University, Finland, as Senior Fellow, The Finnish Academy, and
Associate Professor in Canada.

Kaarina acted as Principal of the Simone de Beauvoir Institute and
also taught at the Institute.
