Plesati Slovenian Dance Group in Ottawa Canada began 2021 with the arrival of some new costume pieces. You are invited to read what they have written about this important event.

 

Some of our members have grown a lot since we last saw them so we ordered a new Gorenjska style vests and hats. Mr. Pajek from Pajk Klobuki made beautiful custom hats for our boys. We also ordered some dresses, shirts, and socks for our girls that should be arriving soon. This would not have been possible without the support of the Governmental Office for Slovenians Abroad, and we are very grateful to them.  We can’t wait for the opportunity to perform and show off the new costumes.

 

Our group is still functioning online right now. On Tuesday February 16 the group met for a virtual “Pustna Zabava”. The dancers learned about Kurentovanje traditions as well as Pust, and celebrated with games and live music.

 

As some restrictions begin to lift in Ottawa we are looking forward to meeting outdoors again for socially distanced practices. As soon as the snow melts, we hope to be practicing outside!

 

The Office for Slovenes Abroad wishes them to make good use of their new costumes and continue to dance enthusiastically, thus preserving and further strengthening Slovene consciousness in Canada.

Posnetek zaslona. Kurenti, nato napis San Francisco's Club Slovenia

San Francisco’s Slovenian Community has been celebrating Pust annually at the SF Slovenian Hall since the 1930’s.   Sponsored by the local SNPJ lodge, this has been an annual event except for a brief interruption during World War II.   In the 1960’s, a sit down dinner featuring krvavice was introduced and has continued ever since.  The head cook and helpers would gather on the Thursday prior to the event, making upwards of 700 lbs. of krvavice!  The number of attendees would often exceed the hall’s capacity, where on some occasions, late comers had to be turned away! You can read more about the event below. It was written by John Hutar.

 

In the fall of 2020, several members our community got together and organized a Virtual Vinska Trgatev.  Moving this event to a virtual platform was a natural choice for its sponsor, Club Slovenia (first organized in 1922 – nearly 100 years ago!).   Early Slovenian tech pioneers France Rode and Zvonko Fazarinc contributed to the early success of then tech start-up Hewlett Packard.  This Slovenian tech tradition now continues on under the leadership of Dr. Jure Leskovec (Stanford University Professor) and the American Slovenian Education Foundation (ASEF).  With the support of Club Slovenia and participation of musicians and singers who regularly performed at the live event, our inaugural virtual event held in September 2020 was a huge success.  We were optimistic that by February 2021, the pandemic would be behind us and we would gather in person for Pust. 

 

When it became clear that the shelter restriction would prevent an in-person Pust event, Jozef Antolin (Board Director of the Slovenian Progressive Home) started recruiting the “Trgatev Group” to participate in a virtual Pust event.  David McCormick, president of Club Slovenia, committed the Club’s support of the event.   The tradition had to live on! 

 

In planning the virtual Pust, an idea took hold to incorporate cultural presentations explaining the history of Pust in the various regions of Slovenia and the traditional foods that accompany the celebration.   Mia Rode, our community’s Slovenian language instructor helped her students research and assemble the presentations.  It’s worth noting that over the years, many of the Slovenian language students joined the class with limited or no knowledge of the Slovenian language – many enroll to connect with their ancestry. 

Posnetek zaslona. Kurenti, nato napis San Francisco's Club Slovenia

The virtual platform allowed us to include artists from Slovenia in addition to our friends in California and Colorado.   The final result was a 100 minute show that included 20 musical performances and cultural presentations.  Nearly 100 viewers logged on to the live zoom event from locations throughout California, the United States and Slovenia!  Both the Trgatev and Pust recordings now reside on the YouTube channel San Francisco Slovenian Cultural Events.

 

None of us involved do this for fame or notoriety, but all are united in the pride of the Slovenian culture that binds us together.  Our connection to Slovenia comes in many varieties:  some were born there and immigrated to the United States; others are descendants of first, second or third generation immigrants. One is American born but lived in Slovenia for nearly a decade mastering his trade.  One discovered later in life that she has Slovenian roots and was told by a friend “you should come to our Slovenian hall sometime”.  As is typically the case, after her first visit, she was hooked!   She subsequently enrolled in our Slovene language class and has visited Slovenia to see the place of her ancestors.   One performer was a very successful recording artist in Slovenia who now resides in Northern California. 

 

Imbedded in our San Francisco Slovenian Community is the quality of cooperation.  Whether you arrived from Slovenia recently to work at a tech start up, or are connected as a 3rd generation Slovene whose family first settled in a mining town in Minnesota and eventually made their way to California, our community welcomes you!  Bring your accordion and play a song with us; let’s enjoy some food and a glass of wine together; and of course, lock arms and sing a Slovenian song and exchange a few words in Slovenian!  

 

Our Bay Area Slovenian community may not be the largest, but other than being in Slovenia, you won’t find one in a more beautiful location!

Posnetek videa.

Our compatriots in Canada have decided to use the time of quarantine for virtual socializing and consolidating Slovenian consciousness and attachment to their roots. And how could they do it better than through music. They recorded the song “In the Silent Valley”. The organizer of the project, Canadian Slovene John Kajin, described the path from idea to realization. You are invited to read and watch the video.

 

At the beginning of March 2020 while scrolling through Facebook, I came across several videos of songs being posted  featuring many different people singing together, when we couldn’t physically be together. I thought this was a great idea and I knew many of my friends would be interested in taking part in this project. The song we picked was Folsom prison Blues by Johnny Cash and we put the video together and posted it on Facebook in March 2020.

 

We got such favourable responses and everyone enjoyed it, so we decided to do another video. This time a Slovenian classic, V Dolini Tihi by Ansambel Lojzeta Slaka. We have a large Slovenian community in the southern Ontario region with many talented musicians and singers, so I sent out the idea to the community and was amazed at the response I got. This was all happening at the beginning of Covid 19, so I thought this would be a great way to get the Slovenian community together while staying apart.

 

We had musicians from Murski Val, Golden Keys, Ansambel Gregoric, Spotlight Orchestra to participate   as well as many other talented accordion players. We had singers from Nasa Pesem, which is the choir at our local Slovenian Church, Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Catholic Church as well as many other talented Slovenians.

 

In order to put the video together, we got Louis Mavec from Murski Val to play the song on accordion so everyone else could follow along when they made their video’s.  Slowly the videos started coming in and at the end, we had 9 accordion players, 4 button box players and many singers. Unfortunately , we were not able to incorporate the button box players into the video. Many of our accordion players live in the Southern Ontario region but we were also able to recruit a close friend from Chicago to be part of the is video as well.

Posnetek videa.

Once we got all the videos, I was lucky enough to know a very talented person who was familiar with putting this videos together. This project could not of been completed without Travis Blackwell’s knowledge and skill. Travis has also completed several other videos for Facebook for our local Slovenian dance Group, Mladi Glas/ Planika.

 

Our Dolini Tihi video have been viewed by many friends, family as well as other people in Ontario, the U.S.A and now in Slovenia. I haven’t tracked who has watched the video but I’m glad to say we had a lot of positive feedback.

Slovenian Australian Academic Association (SAAA) cordially invites you to the 4th SAAA Conference, which will take place for the first time on-line over Zoom on 20 November 2020 between 12pm and 4:30pm Melbourne & Sydney time.

 

This year’s SAAA conference will be hosted by Te Herenga Waka-Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand and will run under the conference theme: “The role of place in an increasingly placeless world”. In Te Reo Māori, the language of the indigenous people of Aotearoa New Zealand, the word whenua refers to both “land” and “placenta”. It denotes the significance of “place” as a source of life and a direct link to one’s whakapapa (a line of descent from one’s ancestors), where genealogy and identity intersect.

 

It is an honour to partner again with the Slovenian Australian Chamber of Commerce (SACC), the Association of Slovenes Educated Abroad (VTIS) and the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Canberra. This conference is also supported by the Government Office of the Republic of Slovenia for Slovenians Abroad.

 

The conference will be officially opened by H. E. Dr Helena Jaklitsch, Minister for Slovenians Abroad, Republic of Slovenia Government Office for Slovenians Abroad. We have a fantastic line-up of speakers at the event, some of them include:

  • H. E. Mr Jurij Rifelj, Ambassador of the Republic of Slovenia to Australia
  • Keynote speaker: Dr Julija Sardelić, Te Herenga Waka-Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand who will talk about “Being placed in the ‘out of place’? Rethinking the place(lessness) of marginalised citizens across the Globe in 2020”
  • Keynote speaker: A/Prof Sergeja Slapničar, University of Queensland, Australia who will talk about “How do organisations protect themselves against cyber risk? Investigating cyber risk governance and management practices”
  • Business practice talk: Mr Črt Prašnikar, GM Global Premium Strategy at Fisher & Paykel Appliances, New Zealand who will share his experiences of a Slovenian manager working on both sides of the Tasman (interviewed by Ms Mateya Slobodnik from the Slovenian Australian Chamber of Commerce)

 

You can find more information about the conference on the link below, it is also necessary to register free of charge before the event.

 

We look forward to seeing you in November.

The conference language is English.
